New Mama Mondays: Meal Train

Lina at 4 Days Old

My husband and I were lucky (in a way) and didn't have to worry about cooking during the first few weeks of our baby's life (she was in the NICU for 16 days and we stayed at a Ronald MacDonald House where lovely volunteers fed us). But, if she hadn't had a bumpy beginning and we weren't doing the whole traditional-Indian-thing-of-living-with-your-parents, I would have loved Meal Train. I just read about the site in a parenting magazine and had to share.

Meal Train is a quick and simple way to organize meals for friends who have just had a new baby.  It's a portal where folks can see all the info needed to make dinner for the New Mama (food preferences, allergies, who is bringing what goodies on what day, etc...). The site sends you an email reminding you to get cooking! Best of all it's free. If you know someone about to have a new baby or maybe even someone who is dealing with an illness, let them pass on the info about this site.
