Say the baby’s name
One of the greatest ways to acknowledge the life that was lost is to say the baby’s name. If the parents have named the baby, try not to refer to her or him as “it” or “the baby.” Talk about him as a person, just like you would if he had been a 15-year-old child. That baby was someone’s son or daughter. He or she was a real human being, and one of the greatest identifying distinctions we have as people is our name.
