This month we’re talking about feeding babies here on Eat Well, Spend Less. Between the lot of us, we have 35 kids, so I’d say this is a subject we’re pretty well equipped to take on, but more than that, in the last few weeks we’ve welcomed three brand new babies into that count. Aimee welcomed Clara into her home, Tammy and family rejoiced when Channah arrived, and Carrie said hello to a new Baby Bargains.
It’s been a few years since my fourth baby made an appearance. Still, I had plenty of practice with those first few week, the following months, and the toddler years with the four kids, and there is no mistaking that they aren’t the slowest time in your life.
Still, this isn’t the time to start relying on takeout boxes and pizza delivery. As a mom, your body is healing from a nine-month marathon, complete with a mile-long sprint to the finish line. You need the best nutrition you can get to heal and provide the energy to get through those first newborn days and nights, as well as for milk production if you’re breastfeeding.
