What are the best ways to support a new parent as a friend?

posted 6 months 1 week ago
My friend has just had a baby and I am looking for the best way to support him and his girlfriend and the baby.
At the moment I can think of:
  • Keeping in contact to see how they're getting on, but understanding if they're busy and can't talk.
  • Offering help with things like shopping and chores.
  • Offering to baby sit so they can relax for a little bit.
  • Buying things like baby clothes and other baby things.

I can see lots of advice for new parents, but just not sure if there's anything else I can help with. Obviously don't want to be overbearing either. Smile

Those are great things to offer. Keeping in contact by means of letting them know you're just there when they need a help. Smile
