I used the avent cups witht he little blue lids to take the food on outings. They are the toss breast milk storage containers. Worked like a charm. Lord i miss those days!
I use the avent cups too! Haha! I haven't used my breastpump a day so I thought I would get some use out of the cups. They work great.
I do not use a microwave and do not own a microwave.. I heat some of the precooked food in a small saucepan until hot and then mix with the rest of portion of cold food, so it comes out nice and warm and there is no waiting time. Just be careful what you start with. We are big into the squashes and green veggies. A banana w. some rice cereal. I do not make my own cereal, but I buy organic rice cereal that I trust. It is also good to thicken purree if it's too thin.
Good luck! It is really fun once you start.
