Do you/will you mainly buy baby food or make your own?

I'm planning on making all of Lily's food once she goes onto solids. My mom did it with me and most people I know that have kids made theirs as well.

I did about 25% making and 75% buying when Alexis was on baby food. I had really wanted to make it all... but it turned out to be more work than I thought, and I just didn't have time to make everything for her. I DID make some of it, though - bananas were wicked easy, so I always did those. And yams/sweet potatoes were pretty easy and she preferred homemade VS bought.. stuff like peas and green beans were HARD for me to do (because of the skins).. so I bought the green stuff and meats. And made the fruits

I'm with Erika - I'm 75-25. Most stuff I buy - especially flavors I know she's into but I've mashed and Magic Bulleted some fresh fruits and meats for her

I never really thought about making it, but I'd love to give it a try! So I'll probably make some, and buy some. I want to stick to organic foods and baby food as much as possible.
