Your mom and mother-in-law, best friend, a neighbor down the street, your understanding boss — if you have a new little baby, chances are, there have been people around you there to help. When you’re a new mom, every bit of help counts, so taking a moment to say a formal thank you is a sweet way to give back to people who have been there for you.
I dug around for a little inspiration on Pinterest and found some great ideas for saying “thanks for helping with the baby.”
