I purchased a book from Amazon for my kindle. It is a lot easier for me to have my cookbooks on my Kindle, and they actually cost a little less too. I also found some great recipes and tips on websites. I thought I would share them with you.
This is the book I have on my Kindle. It is very easy to follow and has the recipes set up from the very first solid to more toddler type recipes.
I do not have a fancy baby food cooker to make the food. I just ended up using my basic food processor. I have heard it is also great to use a blender too.
I purchased a few containers for storing the food in the freezer to try them out. I first tried out two sizes of the OXO tot blocks for baby food. I love that they are microwavable. It makes it easy to go from freezer to baby pretty quickly. I have the 2 oz and the 4 oz sizes.
I tried these Fresh Baby trays last night for the first time. I like the size of these and think that it will allow me to not waste a lot of the food in the end. I made the peaches and pears recipe from the 201 Organic Baby Purees book and put them in these. The two recipes filled each of these trays completely. I used three pears and four small peaches.
The boys so far are fans of pretty much only sweet potatoes. They are not fans of peas (like their mom), but I was surprised that they were not to happy to be eating carrots as well.
Here is Davis closing his eyes hoping we will stop forcing him to eat the carrots.
Hopefully once we get to fruits they will be a little happier at the dinner table.
