What kind of baby food did you/do you use?

With my son, I always bought whatever was on sale. With this baby, I will probably do the same! I know some people make their own baby food by sticking the food in their blender on the puree setting. Then they freeze it. I don't have time for that!

Yikes! this reminds me how quickly Grace is growing up. I haven't had to buy any yet, but in a couple of months we will. I will probably just get whatever is on sale as well. I'm cheap!

Wow. We aren't there yet. I bet I could do the whole make your own considering my family owns a warehouse full of fruits and vegetables. But I'll probably be to lazy to do that too.

We're going to be making our own. I bought a book on baby food recipes and if you look at the ingredients on the jars it's pretty basic food. You can pretty much put your unseasoned food/meal into a blender and tada! We'll save a lot of money that way too

When we were on the stage 1 foods I used the gerber brand cuz you got 2 for $1.00 but now since we've moved to stage 2 foods, I buy the Beech Nut brand its much cheaper.
My Dr recommened us getting a food grinder and grinding up what we eat for her. But I'm just not into that. She hasnt had ANY table food yet.

I don't remember what I bought, but I don't think I ever stuck to a brand.

I buy some baby food, and I do make some of my own, I just blend up what we eat. (if it's baby appropriate).

i usually get beechnut, because its the cheapest, only by a few cents though, if gerber happens to be cheaper when i get to the store then i buy that
