My baby is due in a few weeks, and I’d like to get ahead on the announcements. How did you do this?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply:  I knew we’d be busy after baby’s arrival, so I took our wedding invitation address list, added some friends and colleagues, and made a file of mailing labels ahead of time. A few weeks after our baby was born, I ordered announcements online via Shutterfly. I had very little energy for anything but taking care of our newborn, so it was great to have the labels ready to go.
