We have jumped into the world of baby food. Yes, I'm one of those moms that is actually making the food at home. Listen, don't knock it until you try it! I will honestly tell you - it's way easier then you'd ever imagine AND it's cheaper too! I haven't ever cooked much and I figure I'm going to have to start cooking for Dominick anyway, why not start now.
You just steam/bake/poach then puree! That's it! Here's a great website for easy how to's and recipes: http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/
We have little one and two ounce containers for easy portions. Most everything can be frozen, so we have a freezer full of a rainbow assortment of fruits and veggies.
We started out with carrots. This was Dominick's first ever people food, 9/25/09.
Not too sure... what the heck is this... oh wait, it's good!
He loved it! He opens his mouth wide with every bite like a little baby bird.
Next up, peas.
Okay - he didn't like the peas as much as the carrots, but he still ate every bite. He's such a good eater. At daycare, his teacher Miss Pam can't fix anyone else's food in front of Dominick because he thinks it for him and throws a fit if he doesn't get any!
We're still trying to figure out the best feeding schedule and amounts so that he takes all of his bottles.
On his like list so far is: carrots, peas, sweetpotatoes, butternut squash and bananas. We tried avocado but he really doesn't like it. It came flying back out! Wish I had may camera for that one.
Next up - green beans, acorn squash, apples, peaches and zucchini!
