Making homemade baby food

Postby AnnieBeansprout » Sat Jul 30, 2011 1:38 pm

My babies are long grown up, but since I love to make vegetable soup, I recently bought one of those immersion blenders. They've been around a long time I think, and many of you probably know about them. I'm late to the game!

First thing I thought of was wow, I wish I would have had this when my babies were babies! :)

I limited my homemade baby food to fruits and veggies, which I would steam and then mash or blend. It really was a huge project (although rewarding). But with the immersion blender it would be so fast and easy, and (if you are like me and love gadgets), fun!

I don't know if this is still the recommended method, but back then we would use ice trays and spoon each little cubby with our prepared food, and then freeze. Later you pop out one or two, allow to thaw and there ya go. Very easy.

When I was making the various fruits for my youngest son, my elder child loved to eat the frozen blocks. I would stick a pop sickle stick in a few of them prior to freezing. Made a fun treat.

I'm thinking many of you who make baby food may already use the immersion blender...because I am very late to owning one. But, wanted to pass it on in case you don't, or in case you have not had your little one yet and hadn't thought about it.

Hi..I will not be giving any tips or suggestions but a question instead. My sister went out from C-section several days ago and she is now at home recovering. However, we noticed that she has no milk to breast feed her baby. Any suggestion on food that we need to prepare to help her produce milk? thank you for your help!
