Adding a new child to a family is no small endeavor, and help is almost always appreciated. I say almost always, because not everyone accepts helps easily, or wants it at all.
But it’s normal for people to want to help a family adjust. We want to oooh and ahhhh over the new baby and praise the parents for a job well done. But how to actually help a new mom (or mom with a new baby) can be hard to figure out. There are so many different personality types out there, it’s near impossible to decipher what a mom needs.
Here’s how to actually help a new mom: ASK HER. Don’t assume you know what’s best for her. Ask, and then not only ask, but LISTEN to what she says.
