Baby Food - Stage 1

Yes! Qayden is already on Stage - 1 Baby Food. Started on solid food since he was 5++ months.

For Qhalish, what I did was I bought all the heinz & gerber pureed food.. but as I told ya..mommy got to save some money now..! So decided to make my own baby food. Actually is not that difficult to prepare your own baby food - "PUREE".. Preparing homemade baby food puree is not only fun, it's also very simple. You will be surprised to see that it really will take less time to puree baby food than you imagined.

What you need to do is ;-
i) Buy the ingredients i.e carrot, sweet potato, avacado, banana etc.(..ME..prefer organic stuff for my little precious)
ii) Cooking tools. I always steam my ingredients as  steaming maintains the most nutrients!
iii) Let it cool a bit, than toss it into blender / food processor / by using only fork. Depends on what ingredient you want to puree. If avacado, might be as well using fork only.
iv) Sometimes I combined  2 ingredients together. i.e avacado + banana~
v) and please don't be afraid to mix up with your breast milk/ formula, which these 2 ingredients will give a nutrition boost and to add familiar taste to baby!
vi) then transfer the puree to the ice cube tray and freeze it. 
vii) Once the cubes of puree have set and frozen, take the trays out of the freezer and transfer the cubes into freezer bags and label the date and type of food you're using.
viii) When it's time to feed baby, simply take out the number of food cubes needed and thaw and then reheat. As simple as 123 isn't it mommies~!

So..say YES to HOMEMADE baby FOOD~!
