One thing the parents did at my daughter’s school when my second baby arrived was a meal roster for me – it was amazing. Every afternoon my husband would bring home little baskets of a meal, a little letter with well-wishes and some flowers – so very nurturing, kind, caring and nourishing. I shall never forget how that made me feel. And I would get the evening to sit and gaze at my new baby and talk with my daughter.
If you MamaBake, pulling together a little care package for a new mum is as simple as making a wee bit extra or making what you already have go a little bit further.
If you would simply just like to drop over a nice fresh, home-made meal to a friend who has just had a baby but not sure what to cook up; this list is for you.
One thing we did note from a thread some years ago when we asked what meals mums loved when they were newly birthed was: along with all the yummy slow cooked meals and lasagnes – that a nice, fresh green salad is also really appreciated.
Be sure to check with the mum first if there are any foods she is avoiding.
