Baby food blender??

My mom made a comment when i was like 8 weeks prego and i'm now 20 weeks and some days..lol i havn't looked at my ticker in my siggy in the last couple of days..lol with out that thing i would be lost...lol with 5 kids and one on the way..lol it helps me keep track..HAHA

But back to my mother..lol She made a comment that she saw a blender type thing that was just for making baby food, and she almost got it for me but she didn't cause she didn't no if i would use it...but wanted to talk to me about it. She figured i would since i'm in to cloth and all my other thing that people think i'm weird..HAHA i'm sure you all know what i'm talking about..lol

SO my question is..what do you use? Do you just use a normal blender and go from there? or is there one just for baby food making that you all love?

If you have reciepes and stuff for it too i would love to see and read them and even test them out..lol since i will be useing REAL stuff and i no what will be going into them..i can eat them...lol and try them and attack my other kiddoes with them since my baby wont be born till march..giggle and wont start food for a while..lol but i can still play with it..LOL

And what bowls and stuff do you store them in? freeze them in and all that good stuff!!

I thought about searching but then i thought oh no i will come to my DS mammas and see what they say and advise they can give me..:P


So lets hear it..:P

Maybe i will even find a mamma that is selling hers cause baby is all grown up and past baby food...giggle..we will see..

spam me or the thread..


thank you all, Sherrie

My LO is 6.5 mo and I just use a fork, my immersion blender, or my magic bullet. Nothing is set aside just for baby food. But then again, I don't really make baby food. I just over-cook and mush up some of what we're eating (i.e. leave some peas in the pot a few minutes extra, then blend with cooking water). Sometimes I just make cooked fruit spears and let DD mash her own :-)) When we have fruit that is going ripe too fast to eat, I peel, steam, mush and store in OXO baby cubes in the freezer. I love the freezer to microwave-ability of the oxo cubes.
Hope this helps!

Re: Baby food blender??

I have a Beaba. I love it, but definitely not a necessity, more of a luxury. It steams, blends and reheats/thaws. You can use any food processor or blender you already have, even a potato masher or food mill.

So far for DS, I have made sweet potato puree (peel and chop a sweet potato and steam) and apple sauce (like making regular ol apple sauce).

Last night I was able to make a bunch of each, and I just filled the ice cube trays from ikea to freeze them. Once frozen, I pop the cubes into freezer bags labelled with the contents and the date.

you have a while before you need/would use it, at very least 4 months (later depending on what you and your baby decide). No one got it for my baby shower, but turns out for my birthday last month, everyone thought it was the perfect gift.... bc i got 2.

Re: Baby food blender??

We have the kidco electric food mill. Works great for us. We store in the fridge in the extra small pyrex glass bowls with lids for a couple days or we freeze in cubes and then in a freezer bag.

We either roast in the oven or we have a Hamilton Beach tiered steamer for steaming before puree'ing.

This our method, freeze in ice cube trays and move to freezer bags. Worked great for first two kids, will do again for this lo.
