Any tips for how to offer to do those things without making it seem like I think she NEEDS help? She has a huge, very supportive family, so she doesn't need my help; I just want to be a good friend and pitch in where I can.
Also, about AP-type things. She's planning on going back to work after only a short maternity leave, because she loves her job. I'd be surprised if she breastfed or cd'd, since those things tend to require time. On the other hand, I'd hate to see her spend her entire salary on formula and sposies. Any ideas on whether I could/should help her keep her mind open to alternatives?
