So I will be making my own baby food and upon researching that... stumbled on this site... I know some say order isnt important when introducing foods, But I would still like something to follow ( even if loosely) and I like their chart and recipes
I just really like the idea of whole, not processed, fresh foods (cereal,fruit,veggies AND meat) for baby... and I like even more the idea of feeding baby how you eat... We typically eat very healthy and I would feed her the same way
(more so applies to as she gets older... IE: we eat chicken and peas, so does she - obviously puree) and I think the best way for her to eat the best is mto make it myself That way I KNOW whats in it.
I am glad you posted this Tay!!! Wanted to know if you or anyone has used the baby food maker you posted...or any baby food maker for that fact and what they think about them. I am thinking about getting one, but dont wanna jump in and get one and regret it later. I really like Baeba one from what I have read. Any suggestions? Is it worth making your own baby food???
I love that site too! I have been using the Baeba and really like it - its SUPER easy and worth the price for me because it cuts preperation time in half. So far, I've made apples and sweet potatos. The only "con" is that you can't make huge quantities for freezing...it only makes about 2 cups.
I feel better knowing Reagan is getting fresh foods...but I read somewhere that you should always buy organic when making baby food...otherwise the fruits, etc. have pesticides and other types of chemicals on the skin, which is not good for babies.
DH and I also eat pretty healthy and joined a farm co-op this summer, so will be getting fresh veggies every week. We'll just puree them for Reagan and she'll be eating what we eat.
Thanks Christine! I was hoping for feedback on the baeba.... I do want to freeze some, but since I stay home, its not a huge deal that I cant do big portions.... So it is pretty user friendly? We have a co-op too that I LOVE to buy produce from and a farmers market right up the road with a huge selection of organics. I will buy all the grains for cereal at the co op I think... I just need to find a good grinder
Tay - yes, it is very user-friendly. Once you figure it out once, its a cinch. Basically, you cube the food, pour in the water (they give you a guide so you know how much water to use), lock the bowl down and turn to steam. Steaming takes about 10 minutes and when the light goes off, you know its done.
Then, drain the water (I put aside and use some for the puree), put the food back and lock the bowl. Turn the switch the other way and it purees in about a minute.
There are tons of reviews on Williams Sonoma's website if you want to read what other people say about it! I'm all about quick and easy, so it was worth the price to me.
