In the Kitchen
Friends and family may stop by with casseroles and cookies, but you don't want to bank on it. If you have the time and motivation, whip up as many of these freezable meals as you can and stock your fridge. Ordering takeout gets old (and expensive!), and homemade meals are a much healthier alternative.
With a new baby in the house, you'll also want to make sure that you have plenty of easy grab-and-go options for breakfast, lunch, and snack time. If you're breastfeeding especially, all of those extra calories burned are likely to lead to an increased appetite. Make sure that you have the necessary goods to satiate it!
