I have a good friend who had a baby about 6 months ago. shes very protective over her but have also noticed shes very snappy with me. i know shes had a lot of sleepless nights and am understanding about this but it seems lately anything i say makes her snap. its putting me on edge and i dont want to make a big thing and confront her but dont know what to do. ive offered her help but shes always refuses. its getting me down what shall i do?

dont be confrontational with her but sit her down and tell her you feel she has been quite snappy with you lately and that you want to help her, explain to her that you know she must be under a lot of stress and that you are always there for her if she needs to talk.
Sometimes as friends we just need to take the good with the bad.
