Parents of infants need help, but they often don’t know how to properly ask for it. And if all you, as a friend, do is to say “let me know how I can help,” chances are you’ll hear meaningless platitudes that they’re fine. Instead of being overly general, do something specific. Laundry piles up quickly with a newborn, so toss a load in when you first arrive, and be sure to at least get it into the dryer before you leave. If your friend isn’t uncomfortable with the idea, you can even fold it and put it away. But really, just getting some clothes and bedding clean makes a world of difference, and it will be so appreciated.
