Last but not the least: Shower her with love. Show your daughter-in-law genuine concern and care — as much as you would to your new grandchild.
Think about it: Without her, you wouldn't have that bouncing, cuddly baby to hold and sing lullabies to, right?
Also, as you may or may not recall, the postnatal period is usually fraught with emotional and physical changes, and your daughter-in-law is probably feeling overwhelmed, vulnerable or, at the very least, tired.
So be supportive and understanding — and you're already on your way to becoming not just a good mother-in-law but a super mum-in-law!
Now, we'd like to know... are you a mum-in-law yourself? Perhaps you have some tips for being a good-mother-in law too!
Or perhaps you are a reader who has a good mother-in-law... If you are, what traits does she have that makes you say so? Come share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment below!
