How I'm doing baby food

Have you seen the squeeze baby food they sell?  So easy and convenient, yet so expensive.  I thought there had to be a better way to do it myself for less so I started searching Amazon for a reusable one.  And I found one!

Now, it is all I use to feed my 7 month old because after 4 kids I just really hate the whole spoon feeding thing.  I skipped baby food almost totally with my third and he uses a spoon and fork just fine.

Here is how I do her baby food.  If you want the super easy way, just buy canned vegetables - softer ones and use your blender to make your own purees.  I usually try to do a vegetable and a fruit.

My latest combinations are - carrots and sweet potatoes or carrots and peaches and pears and peas.  I do applesauce by itself a lot of times.

If you want to do it even more natural - buy frozen and steam them and then puree them.

I use my microwave steamer most of the time.  It is easy or you could steam them on the stove top.

 Then I puree them in my blender.

 To make it a little easier to pour I put it in my Pyrex cup and pour into the reusable squeeze pouch.  Or you could just spoon it in.

I try to make a week's worth at a time and I store them in these half pint containers in the fridge.




  1. Can't say I'm looking forward to the baby food stage. Looks like you have a good system though.

  2. I hate doing baby food! I wish I had this when I was in the midst of it!


I love comments!
