When did you start making baby food for your baby and how long does it keep? My LO is only 3 months but I'm seriously considering Mali her baby food instead of store buying. Please give me any tips and suggestions on starting it up!

We do baby led solids, so no baby food.

I agree with the others. Look into baby led solids instead. Easier and healthier than purees that are mainly water. If they need purees they aren't ready for solids:)

I got a magic bullet for a baby shower gift, before they had the baby magic bullets, whatever I ate for breakfast, lunch, or dinner I would throw in the bullet with some water and he would eat it. I only made what he would eat because it's that quick and we were going out to the zoo or something I would just take store bought organic so I didnt have to worry about refrigeration.

You mixed everything together as one food or blended up say carrots with water and then blended up say chicken with water or all together?

I'm sorry, but that sounds disgusting.  why not just give him the food without blending it?

Lol it would depend. For thanksgiving once I mixed turkey and mashed potatoes together. I wouldn't ever feed/mix him something I wouldn't eat.
