The Perfect Baby Gift For The Second Baby?

Not sure what to get the expecting mother who already has everything she’ll need from her first child?

I had the same challenge when my girlfriend Eliza announced she was pregnant with her second son. “I just wish you could come to my house and cook everyday!” she said with a sigh and slumped shoulders when I inquired about a baby gift.

So I did the next best thing. I filled her freezer with soothing, homemade meals that she reheated for an entire week – that worked both for her young son and husband. This “bundle of joy” made the first week home so much easier.

Cooking a week’s worth of food might sound like a chore, but planning it out can mean that you’ll have the goodies packed and ready in just one day. Follow this foolproof guide to stock the freezer in just one day.

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    This is a great idea, FOR MYSELF! I am 6 months pregnant with my second little girl and I pretty much have everything I need baby-wise. But I already know from experience that my family and I will need meals on hand once our new bundle arrives. I better get to stocking our freezer sooner than later.

    By the way, I saw you on a re-run of choped last night, always fun to watch and to get reinspired by your passion for healthy cooking!

      Thanks Jenn and many many congrats for your sweet baby girl, very exciting 🙂 Suggest the “big freeze” to a friend so he or she can do it for you as a gift!
