You’ve stocked the diaper changing area, so now it’s time to put it to use! Your new mom friend has years of changing diapers ahead of her, so take a literal load off her and offer to change a diaper or two while you’re there visiting. Let her get a break from the messiness of newborn blowouts and the inevitable poop-on-hands. Take one for the team and let the diaperless baby pee on you instead of mom. The parents will get to take the job over again soon enough, but while you’re visiting, take charge of keeping baby clean and dry.
