So I started doing some research and somewhere along the way I got really REALLY excited to try it. Suddenly, the thought of cooking for my baby made me really sentimental (combine that with end-of-pregnancy hormones and I was weeping at the sight of little baby spoons and ice cube trays). Not only would I know exactly what I was feeding my baby, but I would have more control over the flavors and combinations she would be experiencing. My hope is that by feeding her what we eat, she will be less picky about trying food as she gets older (fingers crossed!).
Now on to the good stuff... let's start cooking! These are a few of the simple baby food purees I have made for Annalyn. We've only been doing food for about a month now (we decided with our doctor to start some solids at 4 months, but every baby is different, so be sure to talk it over with your pediatrician before starting solid foods), so we are still focusing on the basics, no curry for this baby....yet!
I love this ingredient list... frest fruit, veggies, and water. THAT'S IT!!
4. Store in refrigerator for 2-3 days, or freeze. To reheat frozen cubes, use defrost setting on microwave until desired temperature is reached.
