Oh friend, if you are looking for freezer meals for new moms you have come to the mother-load resource for freezer cooking, let me tell ya!

I love making large family freezer meals. I especially have come to depend on easy freezer meals during my postpartum time after a new baby.

Freezer meals for big families

This was the case almost two years ago now when I did some Mega Freezer Cooking including 60+ Freezer Meals with 26 Dinners, 21 Breakfasts, 16 Lunches at the beginning of my 3rd trimester. Then made 100+ FREEZER MEALS FOR BIG FAMILIES towards the end of my 3rd trimester with baby #8.

These two big freezer cooking times got my family through my last trimester and through the first 5 or so weeks after I had the baby. Once the baby was about 8 weeks old I did another “super mega” LARGE FAMILY FREEZER COOKING DAY time in September of that year.

Pregnant or not I always work on keeping my stash of freezer meals stocked up in my freezer. I like to have a dedicated freezer cooking day at least once a month. Some months fly by and I’m not able to get in that dedicated freezer cooking day. Other months I’m able to get in 2 to 3 days which is very helpful!

Recently it hit me that two of my homeschool momma friends were about to have babies and what better gift than freezer meals for new moms! I had just finished a three-week pantry and freezers challenge for my family so I had room in the freezer to make a bunch of freezer meals. I decided to take one evening and cook up one of my large family freezer meals packs to make freezer meals for these moms!

Freezer Meals for New Moms Recipes

Here are all the freezer meal recipes I cooked up when making these freezer meals for new moms. Instead of looking up each recipe I used large family freezer meals pack two and followed the freezer meals grocery shopping list, big batch cooking guide which broke down all the steps efficiently, and additional freezer cooking directions to make making these 40 meals as much as a “breeze” as possible.

Freezer Meals Grocery Shopping

Using the Freezer Meals Grocery List that comes with large family freezer meals pack two made putting in my grocery order quick and easy. I entered everything I needed from the freezer meals grocery list onto a Walmart grocery pick-up order.

I spent $279 for everything I needed to make these 40 freezer meals. This makes each freezer meal a little over $6 per meal.

Cost of groceries will vary depending on the part of the country you’re in and what items you already have on hand. I already had several pounds of ground beef batch cooked and frozen in the freezer. You might already have chicken you stocked up on when it was on sale or other needed items in your pantry.

Depending on how you swing it, you should end up with about 35 to 40 large family freezer meals to fill your freezer fast by using one of the large family freezer meals packs! These are perfect freezer meals for new moms! And of course, not every mom has a nearly empty large family freezer ready to receive a bunch of easy freezer meals from their freezer cooking addicted friend as a gift, ha!

I did talk to these mommas first to give them fair warning that freezer meals were coming. One of my friends took 12 freezer meals and the other momma took 5. I ended up having another person who needed some freezer meals blessings to take another 5 freezer meals. This left my family with a balance of 18 freezer meals. And believe me, those 18 freezer meals will get used up fast, quick, and in a hurry around here!
