Four – No photos posted of the baby until we do.
Five – Do not come if you’re sick.

And a third added: “Thankfully most people just do these things. I had a baby in December and everyone just had the respect we deserved so no enforcement needed.
“My family and friends gave us so much space when our babies were born,” commented another user. “I was actually bored out of my mind and wanted the help/company.”
Then someone wrote: “How will you enforce these rules with family? I feel as though I’m going to upset people.”
And Maisie replied: “I honestly think most people will know, will do this as the basic anyway, but we shall see when it comes to it!”
