Baby Food

I waited until Jacob was 6 months old to start him on solids, and just like all my other kids when they were babies, he LOVES everything I feed him.

Now why does that change?  Hannah, Daniel and Ben go to bed hungry at least once a week because they “HATE that!”  Oh well, that’s a topic for another time.

I love feeding my easy-to-please baby!  And, I love making baby food.  I think with all my babies (combined) I’ve only purchased about 10 jars of baby food.  I can’t stand that stuff, and neither can they.

Baby food is so easy to make.  I usually make a bunch of one thing, freeze it in ice cube trays and then store it in freezer bags.

Jacob has had rice and oatmeal cereal, applesauce, pears, butternut squash, and yams.

I took a few pictures when I made the pears.

I peeled, sliced, and cooked 4-5 pears

Stuck them in the blender (in two batches) adding the water they cooked in to make a nice thin puree,

Poured the puree in ice cube trays

Froze them and transferred the frozen pear cubes to a bag.  Now I take a few cubes out, thaw and warm them and baby’s meal is ready!

I like to mix things up sometimes too, pear and butternut squash are good together, so are yams and applesauce, and avocado and banana, (I don’t freeze this last combo).

Now if only feeding the rest of the family was this easy!!!

One thought on “Baby Food

  1. Your baby food looks delicious. I hate buying baby food – and therefore never do – because it is expensive and my babies don’t like ANYTHING. They already “HATE that.” I don’t know if this is good or bad, but I don’t usually start feeding them solids until they are 9 or 10 months old, and then it’s a lot of oatmeal and other things we are eating ourselves anyway.
