Hello

How do you congratulate parents on their first new born ?
Is "ucapan selamat" enough ?
Can we say in Indonesian bahasa "selamat datang" to the baby?


Terima kasih :)

    You can say "selamat atas kelahiran anak pertama" translation in English is "congratulation for your 1st born baby"
    If your friends are Muslims you can add "semoga menjadi anak yang soleh(boy)/soleha(girl) dan berbakti kepada orang tua dan negara"

    If they are not Muslims you can add "semoga menjadi anak yang berguna dan berbakti kepada orang tua dan negara"

    And yeah we can say "selamat datang" to the baby. It might sound a bit funny but, nobody will sorry. They will understand you

    "ucapan selamat" - No.

    I'd go for "Selamat atas kelahiran anak pertamanya"

    As for "selamat datang" to the baby, no. This is not a common thing to do. If you do it, it'll sound pretty humorous, which if you're up for the laughs, then go for it!
