I will be starting to make baby food soon and I have pretty good idea of what I am doing, but I thought you ladies that have experience could give me some pointers.
To freeze, if you use ice cube trays, if you pop them out and put them in freezer bags, do you put all of your cubes of one kind in a bag? They don't need to be in a separate bag for each cube do they? (Please don't think I am dumb, I just overthink everything )
And how do you thaw your frozen baby food? What have you found that works best?

Thanks for the info!
Thanks to *Kiliki* for my pretty siggy!

I put each kind of food in it's own bag, because I like to know what is what. Green beans and peas are the same color. I guess you don't have to put them in their own bags, but if you're anything likef me you'll want to I also like to label my bag with the type of fruit/veggie and the date that I made it.

To thaw, I either put the cubes down the day before for her meals... or I microwave them in a microwave safe, BPA free dish.

I'd keep them in different bags too, especially similar colors. but you don't have to.
I microwave also, sometimes in a bpa free bowl or thaw the night before in the fridge, then put it in her take and toss bowl and place that in a container of hot water.

Nothing much to add, I freeze them in the trays overnight only then get them right into the freezer bags with what it is and the date.

Just when you think you'll remember your little one will cut some teeth be up all night and you'll forget, ha ha ha. Or maybe that is just my experience I label everything.

I also thaw in the fridge one day ahead or microwave in a glass bowl, but I don't put it in long enough to "cook" it, just to thaw it out a bit. I try not to microwave, but it happens.
