@AstoriaK:  Do you know for sure that she likes cheese? I’m only saying that because I would never eat it. I’m lactose intolerant and can get away with eating very little dairy without my stomach going crazy.

I think it’s a very sweet thing you’re doing, though. I’d just ask her if it’s ok. No harm in doing that!

I would love it! I have been craving cheese throughout my whole pregnancy but cheese doesn’t bother me at all. My husband on the other hand can’t handle too much dairy but eats it anyway.

I usually bring something similar to what you’re suggesting. In the past I’ve made lasagna or baked ziti. I’ve also brought big batches of hearty soup or chili. I’m sure she will appreciate it!

She will really appreciate it! I’m sure she is exhausted.

I recently brought over the following for my friend who is a vegetarian new mother: squash soup, homemade rolls, fruit salad, and blueberry muffins.  The muffins were a new recipe, turned out so so.  She raved about the two in particular last night when I saw her out with the 6 week old kid, and told me I have a second career in cooking.

I didn’t want to make anything pasta related because I heard that’s what most people bring over.  I also heard people often bring dinner – and lunch or breakfast items are really appreciated.

ETA: Just realized you wrote this last week.  Oops.  Oh well.

@AstoriaK:  Sounds great, I would try and make a veg sidedish (or add brocolli?) so that she gets some vitamins as she’ll need them.

I would love that! mmm… As for Boyfriend or Best Friend restrictions when I was breastfeeding I ate what I wanted. I figured if a child is going to get colicy it’s going to happen whether or not I watch what I eat.
