There is no greater joy than celebrating a new life entering the world. The anticipation of welcoming a bundle of joy is unmatched, and it’s even more exciting to share in the happiness of the new parents-to-be. Whether the lucky baby belongs to your best friend or a family member, the pressure of appropriately expressing new baby wishes in a card is huge. Capturing the right sentiment in any kind of greetings card can be tricky. But with a little preparation, it doesn’t have to be. Read on for some guidance on how to congratulate someone on a new baby and shower the proud parents with lots of love.
