    Having your first baby is an incredibly precious and unstable time.
    No one knows what this mum is going through.

    She might just be rude and thoughtless OR she might be struggling with PND and getting on with life with a baby so thank you text/card etc is not on top of her priority list.

    A phone call or a text to check on her might be a good idea?

    I understand that you are feeling disappointed but wouldn't take it personally OP

    Then she is probably just rude :-(
    Or might not have received it?

    Always always always send a thank you card to the giver - that said it took me a good month or so to mail them out after my babe was born, it's a very tiring time.

    My reply would have been something along these lines ^^^. she's either being rude, or something is up. 50/50 chance. I know after dd2.was born my life was a blur for a long time, I'm sure I missed tq cards here & there.

    I try to, but I have missed people before. Especially after a new baby, it is a hectic and overwhelming time.

    I would not get all upset if someone else didn't say thank you either, we are humans and sometimes make mistakes.

    I sometimes think that the art of benevolence has been totally lost...if your desire is to give them something nice, why not just let it be. If you are only doing it for the recognition, perhaps you are doing it for the wrong reasons.

    I don't give gifts just so people can thank me that's just silly.
    But I do believe its rude to not acknowledge the gift giver. That's just how I was brought up which is why I think the opposite is very rude.

    Oh her baby isn't a newborn? Then yeah, that's just rude.

    I always say thank you for gifts and would feel it rude if someone didn't say thank you for something I gave them.
