Do any of you freaky people make your own food?

 

We just started.

 

Simple stuff thus far, but we've slowly been adding in spices.

 

Whos got some clever ideas for baby food?

I did. I found making it & then pouring it into ice cube trays & freezing cubes & then popping them out into ziplocs made life much easier. 1 standard cube is about 1 ounce, if I remember correctly.

We do!  She loves it!  Her favorite is sweet potatoes, followed by avocado.  She's also had apples, prunes, peas, green beans, bananas, peaches.  She's quite the foodie!  We are going to start introducing spices, and pretty soon we get to start giving her some meats!  Eep!

I got the Baby Bullet for my shower.  I love it, especially with the cups that easily fit in the fridge in their own little tray.  I have to say plums were my favorite to make, peeling the skins from the steamed plums is neat, but the color after blending, its a beautiful pink!  Lol!  Aesthetically pleasing baby food!!!

Rich made more sweet potatoes the other day and put a pinch cinnamon in them.  She loves it!


We use the Wholesome Baby Food guide for ideas, tips, and recipes.


Going to start chicken soon! :eek:

I don't know how to incorporate more chunky food.  She is picky with the puree.  Bah! :ravn:

slowly,,if she likes applesauce, steam up some chunks and leave them in.

 

or steam them and put them on her high chair tray and let her play around with them

I should rephrase that. She loves food pureed. When it's chunky, she gets confused and picky. :lol: I think I did say that, but just wanted to be sure. She loves her applesauce. I wanted to try to give her some chunks of that, and maybe some pieces of banana, see what she does. Just when you think you have it down, it changes. :lol:

Just keep on tossing the chunks out.

She'll mess around with them and eventually figure it all out.  :smile:

I found that once they get to the age of adding chunky to pureed, most babies don't like that texture & it's easier to give up on the pureed & go to all table food

We put some peas on her high chair tray while we were eating dinner last night.  She enjoyed playing with them.  She would pick them up, look at them, mash them, put them in her mouth. :lol:

 

She still kind of waits for us to put it in her mouth for her, but I figure if we keep letting her play, she will eventually figure out she can do it herself.  She's a very smart little girl. :)

She ate some pieces of a cinnamon bagel on Saturday morning.  Picked them up herself and put them in her mouth! :)

Baby moon is starting solid foods. I've been making his.

Does anyone have any on line sites they like for food guides?

We used the wholesome baby food guide.  They have a great book, and the website provides pretty much everything in the book.

Emelia is a great eater.  She eats everything!  Love it!  I've started introducing a spoon to her to see what she does with it.  She's such a good smart baby! :)

It gives the ages of when to introduce certain things.  We kinda played with that a little...we did wheat earlier only because I have celiac and we read that if we gave wheat with breast milk around 6 months it would decrease her chance of getting it.  So far so good...we haven't noticed her having intolerances to anything which is excellent!

 

And thanks!  I know I'm super obnoxious, but I love her little face and can't help but share!


Your little dude is so handsome!  He is getting so big!  I can't believe they are growing up so fast!!! :)

Oofa, Emelia HATED pureed meat, and I can't say that I blamed her.  I tried it and it was gross. :lol:  She must be a texture freak like her mama. :)

 

And I agree, we should get together.  The babes would have a blast! :yahhh:
