LPT: Don’t go visit the new baby


Half an hour is more appropriate.


Also, offer to do their cleaning. And take a shift if the baby wakes up in the night. Offer to cover their work shifts. Edit: OMG reading some of the comments elsewhere in the thread a day later this comment doesn’t seem so facetious… Really, people think you should do their cleaning if you come to meet the baby?! Am I trying to gain favour with a baby Don Corleone here or what?


Bring condoms and let them know it’s okay to make mistakes, but don’t let it happen again.
