When Emily first started solid foods, I was on a huge baby food makin’ kick! I attended a class about starting solids and making your own baby food. I was sold! I went to the grocery store and bought organic bananas, carrots, and sweet potatoes. I was really good about making Emily’s food for a couple of weeks.
Then I got lazy.
I noticed Gerber makes organic baby food in the cutest little tupperware looking containers. I thought I would just give them a try. She loved them and they were soooooo easy. My mom also got her a bunch of them for Easter so I had nice little stash of the Gerber baby food.
I pretty much ran out of the Gerber this past weekend so I decided to give the baby food makin’ another go. I spent Sunday going through my baby food cookbook.
I love this book! It spells everything out for you, gives great tips, and has great baby recipes! You can find this book here.
On Sunday, I made Emily some apples and pears with cinnamon and some sweet potatoes and broccoli. She really likes both of them.
I can’t wait to try more recipes from this book!
I felt so much better about feeding Emily yesterday and today. I have absolutely nothing against the Gerber foods. Let’s face it, they’re convenient and babies love it! But, I just feel like I stay home with the little monster so the least I can do is make her a homemade meal every once in a while. Right?
