I can’t believe I’m about to admit this, but I was watching Tori Spelling’s show (so embarrassing) & she makes her own baby food. I think she mentioned this blog, or it was in an article about homemade baby food.. I don’t remember. Anyway, here goes. LOL

We plan on making our own baby food too.  I know we can just use a steamer and food processor, but someone bought us the Beaba Babycook so we are going to give that a shot first.  I’m really excited to use it.  http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com is a great website that comes highly recommended by other moms who make their own food.

oh, I’m hoping to do this too, and can’t wait to get the babycook!  It looks like a great tool.  Great to have all these links! ๐Ÿ™‚

I would like to do this also! A friend of ours with twin boys recommended the Magic Bullet since the cup sizes are small and you can just puree the food right there and then serve, or freeze in smaller portion sizes (using ice cube trays) for later. That will work with our budget and may be less messy than taking out the food processor. My mom used the blender so there a so many ways to do this. I think making your own food is such a great idea, these are awesome links!

I have a Magic Bullet. I”m very “eh” about it. I’d rather have a real food processor. I can’t get it to puree easily–i tried to make hummus and it was still chunky. It pureed some carrots ok. Not perfectly smooth, though.

Very interesting.

What’s the deal with the BabyCook thing? Besides the whole BPA free thing?

We use a steamer regularly at home so I’d imagine I would just use that. Not that I’m pregnant or anything but I would def try to make my own baby food when we have a kid. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you buy the tiny glass “mason” jars (ala Gerber)?

BPA is only really a problem when you boil or melt plastics. BPA is a very stable chemical and not toxic until it starts to break down. The same could be said about a lot of items.

Basically, if it’s plastic, it has bisphenol A in it.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law swear by the Magic Bullet.  We put one on our registry and can’t wait to try it.
