homemade baby food

Is it really better? Do I have to get the BABY food processor? Or can it be a regular one?

  • You can use a regular one. Whatever works for you to get it the right texture for your baby.

  • I got a great tip from someone here. She froze her homemade baby food in ice cube  trays so she could thaw out a little at time when she needed it. Brilliant!

  • Regular one. I had every intention of making my own baby food but she didn't even eat solids until 11 months. I breast feed. :)

  • I used my Magic Bullet for small amounts. I also reused my glass jars to store & freeze the food in. I know they say that is bad but . . . I've never had a problem. Just thaw the jars before you heat them.

  • Use the same type of blender you would for a Margherita...lol..But seriously, I made all my kids baby food, I also did the ice cube tray way, just remove them to a ziploc Mark with date and what it is carrots and sweet potatoes and certain squashes can all look the same...very easy...if you use jars as the other lady said just make sure to sterilize them before hand..the other thing is when boiling do NOT drain away the water...keep it to thin the food after processing to get it to the right consistency... you can also make their food from your leftovers...just be careful with seasonings. Good luck
