A special gift for the baby
Do not ever go empty handed when you are visiting new born. You do not have to spend a fortune to buy a gift from Tiffany, but you can buy something decent for the newborn. The best thing is going for a personalized gift. Try baby products shopping online and you will find thousands of customized gift providers. You can chose anything from an embroidered security blanket to name embroidered plush toy to a customized photo frame to anything you find good. If you can buy a nice bouquet of flowers to mamma as well.
Especially if your friend doesn’t have maids at home or working at home, bringing them food means a lot and she would thank you over and over later on. With baby sitting and all other household stuff, she might hardly find time to cook a meal though her appetite these days are huge. It is great if you can show up with a full meal but a pack of cupcakes will even do.
Goods for the baby
Buying some essential infant products like a pack of diapers is worthwhile when visiting a newborn. You can also buy a pack of infant essential gift packs that include things like baby cologne, talc and so on. You can shop all these baby product online, so you do not have to spend time on shopping. If you specifically know the baby care brands, your friend is using, you can obviously pick one of those brands.
A hand sanitizer
Yes, a hand sanitizer. No matter how clean your hands are, you should clean them using a sanitizer when you are going to hold the baby. Because infants easily get infected and that is the last thing your friend want to see happen. Make sure you put a hand sanitizer to your hand bag when visiting a new born baby.
Not your kids
Please do not bring your own kids along with you, no matter how infant -friendly they are. You have to pay total attention to your friend’ infant and no one to see your kids causing troubles at any moment. They might try to hold the infant and play with it. It is not good enough to expose the new born to such risks. At the end of the day, all of them are still kids.
