When friends or family have a new baby enter their lives, it can be a great gift to offer help to them. In my experience, however, it’s not just enough to say, “Let me know if you need anything.” Most families won’t take you up on such a vague offer. Instead, pick something that you feel comfortable doing, and suggest something specific when you offer to help.
Even if you’re not a great cook, there are lots of things you can do to help a family with a new baby. Check out my post at The Happy Housewife titled How to Help Families with a New Baby for some more ideas.
