Other Things Not To Say To A New Mom

Are you a new mom getting beat up by questions and advice from total strangers? Or do you know a new mom and want to say the right thing?

Don’t Say:      

Sleep when the baby sleeps….

Didn’t you want a natural childbirth?

Are you breast feeding?

Do you have him/her on a schedule?

You think this is bad….just wait….

Things to say:

Cutest baby ever! Let me see pictures.

I’m here to clean your house.

I’m here to let you shower.

I brought you dinner.
