What to do when meeting a new baby
Are you getting ready to meet a brand new baby for the first time? It’s an exciting and wonderful experience. However, keep in mind that it’s not only about snuggling with the little one — it’s also an opportunity to support the new parents. Their lives have been turned upside down, and what they need most is support from caring friends and family.
We’ll guide you through the etiquette of visiting first-time parents and a newborn. One rule of thumb: refrain from saying, “Let me know if I can help in any way.” People usually feel uncomfortable asking for favors. Instead, offer specific ways you can contribute. Remember to be patient, understanding and most of all, helpful.
