New Baby Cards DOs and DON’Ts!

- DON’T talk about touchy subjects: Make sure you avoid including parenting advice, asking for details about the birth, or mentioning future children in your card.
- DON’T talk about yourself. It’s easy to want to give advice, however this is about them and their moment. It’s not about how much time you get to spend with the new baby or how your children are. Make sure to keep the focus of your new baby card on them.
- DO include flowers or a gift: If you know the recipients well, feel free to send along a thoughtful gift or bouquet of flowers with your wishes for that extra special touch!
