  • I like beachnut better. because the ingredents are simple. pears, water, asorbic acid (to preserve flavor or freshness). thats what u have to look for. simple ingredients. if u cant pronounce it, i dont buy it. lol. im sure u would jus as i like to kno what im feeding my child. =)

  • I use Beechnut and Natures Goodness, and once in a while Gerber, but Gerber plastic containers actually have less in them than the other brands, and can be more expensive.

  • I always used Gerber for stage 1, but that's because I just thought it was the "best". I think I was just being silly though:) Now that we are in stage 3 I use all brands because I want to give him a variety of flavors. I am very nervous about what table foods to give my 9 1/2 monthold son so I'm trying to stick with baby foods for now:) Yeah..I'm a first time mom:)

  • Being a first time mom, but experinced with children with loads of neices and nephews, and a younger brother. I start off with jars of baby food of all brands for different flavors. Once I get through them all, I then make the food. I just want to make sure my little guy was not allergic to anything. I only buy jared food for mixing with his oatmeal now.
