Offer a basic greeting such as "Best wishes for your future with your new baby," for an acquaintance or co-worker. For a closer friend or family member, offer to help with the baby with a message such as "We are always here for babysitting and making extra bottles."

A new baby card can include an inspiring message, such as a favorite quote or Bible passage. Poems are also appropriate. It can also be a humorous or heartfelt sentiment as long as it is also encouraging. Messages may be written to the parents or the baby itself. Include the baby's name when you know it.

Include a gift of money or a gift card inside the card if you wish. For an acquaintance, $25 is an appropriate amount. For a closer friend, raise the amount to $50 if desired. A common gift amount for a close friend or family member is $100.
