A month before baby is due, every meal you make, double the amount/ recipe. Freeze the extras in Freezer bags, or disposable tin pans for quick reheating. Write the “reheat” instructions on the package so that family or significant others can easily step in an have a meal ready after baby comes.
Leftovers can be transformed into chili Mac, chili dogs, chili cheese dip, or chili soup. A quart ziplock bag can fit about 5 spoon ladles of soup.
Pre-make enchilada rolls. Wrap each one individually with wax paper. Place your stash in a gallon ziplock bag. Write the cooking instructions on the bag. The enchiladas can then be removed and cooked one, two or more at a time depending on who’s eating at that meal.
Alfredo or tomato, whichever kind of pasta your family loves, add extra sauce to your freezer stash. You’ll appreciate it when reheating the dish.
Any kind and flavor make for quick breakfast items for the family. Sweet muffins also meet the sweet tooth needs when you’re up feeding baby all night too!
Juice boxes and snack bags
Quick sweet boost to go with your crackers or dry snacks; juice boxes are not just for kids. Having juice boxes on hand after baby arrives is a great way to efficiently snack while feeding baby.
