19. Be mindful of spreading germs
New moms watch their babies like hawks and often worry if you're kissing up their new bundles of joy. If you absolutely MUST put your lips on the baby, stick to those adorable little toes. Moreover, be mindful of where you put your hands before and while handling the baby. Even touching your face can make Mom nervous. Just remember it's biological and don't take it personally. Her instincts are there to protect her baby.
