  • 2 days and if you feed your baby from that jar then just throw it out. When in doubt throw it away.

  • If you feed from the jar and there is some left you have to throw it away. The spit left on the spoon gets in the food and kind of digests it, it gets really runny and can grow bacteria.

    How long do you leave your food out? ok, that's the same for your baby's food. If you let your "real" peas sit out for X hours/mins then throw it away it's the same for your baby.
