6. Don't visit if you've been exposed to germs
It's easy to talk yourself into going over to see a new baby even if you're getting over a cold or have a sick family member at home, but the last thing the new family needs is for everyone to get sick. Be respectful of what they're going through and wait until you know the germs are 100% gone before visiting. After all, what's mild for you might not be so mild for a new baby.
