Everyone says you need freezer meals for when after the baby comes. What they don’t tell you is that you probably won’t have time to sit down and eat a meal like you used to. Yes, babies sleep a lot.

But a lot of times they fall asleep in your arms.

Or nursing.

Or during those precious skin-to-skin cuddle sessions.

And the last thing you’ll want to do is move and disturb baby. Not just because it’s not worth the risk of baby waking, but also because you will want to savor these moments.
