Things New Parents Should Know - Useful Stuff 2

If you're the partner, or just a good friend, there's not a lot you can do to help out with things like breast-feeding. Only get mum a drink, make her a sandwich, put on the TV, DVD, or some music for her, pass her things she needs, give her a shoulder massage or backrub, talk to her when she's feeding in the middle of the night so she has company, be ready to take the baby when she's done so she can see to her own needs, etc.

So don't feel bad you can't help out much. I mean I'm still recovering from my stroke a couple of years back, and get exhausted easily, so this was all I could do ;-) Collapse )
