Question: For this discussion, you will write a letter responding to the "Dear Milligan Expert" letter below. This letter should be unique and personalized yet scholarly in its approach, using academic information to support your opinions and suggestions. 

Dear Milligan Expert,

Help! My best friend had a beautiful baby girl 6 weeks ago, and while I think that this should be a happy time for her, she doesn't seem to be enjoying it at all. When I visited the other day, she was wearing pajamas that looked (and smelled) like she'd been wearing them for days. She kept joking that she's "no good at the mom thing" yet, and would try to laugh it off, but I'm worried! She isn't interested in going out to shop for cute baby clothes, even though I offered to buy, and she says that she's not ready to come to our "moms group" which meets just once a month for a few hours because she says that she doesn't want to burden her husband. What gives? How can I help her get out of this funk? Should I be worried about her or her little girl? 
--Flustered Friend
