24 Legit Ways You Can Help A Friend After Their Baby Comes
Keep Offering To Help
For the first few days after a baby is born, it may seem like friends and distant relatives come out of the woodwork to offer to help. But by the end of the first week, chances are many of those offers have dried up. People have dropped off meals or a lovingly-selected onesie and then: crickets. But anyone who’s been there knows it only gets harder after the first few days. Sleep deprivation sets in, postpartum hormones go wacko, and OMG breastfeeding is rough! Don’t be like everyone else. Offer to help right away. And keep offering to help, maybe not daily but at least every few days. Your offer will be so appreciated.
