As moms of newborns, what sorts of things would you appreciate help with?
When friends/family ask "How can I help?" How have you responded?

"There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.
Do the laundry.
Clean the bathroom or kitchen.
MrsEllis10: HappyAardvark:Bring dinner. THIS!
kaustin2010:Food. Definitely. And also offering to pick things up at the grocery store before you go over.
Here are a couple of my answers to family and friends....
Shopping (especially heavy,bulky items)
Pet care:Walking the dog or petsitting
Childcare: Taking our toddler to play or even better for an overnight
Don't be afraid to tell people what you want or need. People really want to be helpful especially those who have kids..... I didn't think twice when a friend asked for toilet paper.
