Homemade Baby food?

Does anyone do that?

My Ped said my daugther could start baby food & I would like to do mostly homemade.

Got any tips?

It is super easy! Just stem fruits & veggies & puree. You can use a blender or a food processor if you have one. You can make a bunch and then freeze them in indiviual servings (I used the GLAD single serve Take & Toss containers) or you can prepare each meal fresh. It really isn't much more work, is so much heathlier for your DC and less expensive too!

I used this kit when I made food for DS: http://www.onestepahead.com/product/117/309761/117.html if you're concerned about getting confused or want to know how long to cook things for. I also bought a baby food puree-er thing to help since our blender was broken.
DS never had a jar of commercial baby food.

That's like mine. I bet you could find one cheaper, like $12.99 or so, though. I found it helpful with particularly hard to cut food.

My sister got one of those and hated it, it took so much time for her to anything with it. I just used my blender until I got a food processor, both can be used for other things, the little one really didn't do much good except for baby food.

Also, they have baby food mills for $9.99 if you want to do each meal fresh, it is manual but super easy and the top is a bowl and comes with a spoon. I loved mine for doing fresh meals.

LOL, I hated the manual one. It was hard for me to use, that's why I got the electric one.

I'm lazy and hate dishes so thats why I liked it, I had 5 of them so I would just toss the used one in the diswasher and not have to manually clean it each time. When I went to buy more I realized I might as well get a food processor, and man I LOVE that thing for all sorts of stuff. I could make a whole weeks worth of food in 15-20 min.
