I would have given a kidney if someone would have done any of these things for me after the birth of my second child. To the people who brought my family food while I was so busy with my baby, you will never know the full extent of my gratitude!
1. Take their other kids somewhere. Anywhere -- just get them out of their house. It's so much harder when you have to tend to a new baby and to your other kids. So take out her other children as often as you can!
