    Default Slow cooker a good idea with new born?

    Ok, so baby arrives in 7 weeks and I'm trying to think of ways to make life as easy as possible. Has anyone used a slow cooker and did it help? I was thinking of a Thermomix but wow they are expensive! If anyone has any other tips for 'making life easier' in this sense then if be grateful to hear them

    Accept any and all help offered to you. If someone offers to cook you a meal and being it around don't be shy to accept!
    Slow cookers are great and time effective. You can also prep meals in advance if you have space to freeze them. Google freezer slow cooker meals. You literally prep the meal, throw it in a zip lock bag and freeze it. In the morning, tip contents of bag into slow cooker and cook for 6-8hrs on low and dinner is done! There is a website called slow cooker central that is Australian and has some great recipes. They also have a fb page.

    Great ideas @ Bella978. I use my slow cooker all the time with my bub. When he is having his morning sleep, throw everything in it and its cooked 8 hours later. I feel better because we are eating a nutritious meal and not slaving over the stove. Easy clean up too. You can get recipes from taste.com.au for the slower too or recipe mixes from Woolies/ Coles.

    If you are on Facebook try slow cooker recipes 4 families. I use that as a go to page and my slow cooker saves my life! I would never have dinner on the table half the time without it!
