    I started Cherrios at 7 months with my second, 5 mo with my first. they really do melt in the mouth so there is little to know worry about chocking. Also, when they first start, it is rare they would actually make it into their mouth 🙂 They are recommended to help with cordination.

    If your wee one has teeth, give it a go with just a few Cheerios. If he seems to struggle, get it out of their mouth and try again in a few weeks. 🙂

    My daughter is 14 months and will only let me feed her cereal, yogurt or pureed fruit. Everything else that she used to eat – pureed beef, chicken and veggies, she no longer eats. So I struggle with lunch and dinner. She will feed herself macaroni and other pastas, the inside of a fish stick or chicken nugget, bread, banana, peaches, cucumber and that’s pretty much it! I live in Greece and do not have access to Gerber foods here so I can’t even try her on the stages products found back home in Canada! What else can I try with her? She doesn’t like Cheerios, cooked peas or carrots or any other veggie and that is what she is lacking in eating the most! Any ideas? Also, she is still breastfeeding and not interested in weaning as of yet. She does not like whole milk or goat’s milk – in a bottle, cup or with a straw, warm or cold – she just won’t take it! xox

    My son has a rare genetic disorder and he can not have milk surgars or certian proteins. I was thinking about making my own baby food so I would not have to worrie about the additives in processed baby food. We are going to talk with a nutritionist tomorrow. My question is what is the best way to cook and puree the food. If anyone has any sugestions, I would love to hear.

    I just started making my own baby food a few weeks ago and loving it! I steam the food in a steamer (after peeling/coring and taking seeds out) and then I just puree it in the magic bullet. And it is done! So easy-that is the best way I have found to do it. I have made squash, green beans, pears, apples, sweet potatoes and she loves it=).

    The best advice I can give on making your own baby food is the MAGIC BULLET!
    WOW that thing is amazing and if you watch JCPenny, they have it on sale all the time! I used to use the blender and went out of town to my parents and they had one! So much easier!!! Love that thing that even now my sister in law is making her daughters baby good because I made it look so easy!

    I have started my 6 month old on solid foods. I am making my own this time. It is so easy and fun. Even the big sisters help make Aliyah baby food. I thought that it would be very time consuming. but its not. I just make it and freeze it plus I save so much money. i love it. I’m trying to talk my best friend to do it also.

    Ok so I have made some of my own baby food, only got strong enough to do sweet potatoes, green beans, and bananas so far, going to wait and make sure he’ll eat the other ones before I make it myself. Got a couple of questions though….so my green beans looked so much better, greener and such than the regular jarred stuff but it wasn’t the smooth consistentcy as the jar, but he seemed to like it so is that ok then???? And the bananas I did do not look like the jarred stuff either, could that be because of the age of the bananas or because i might have waited too long after cutting them to puree them?? He just started eating carrots and seems to like them so I’ll be making those probly this next weekend, and have not decided about peas yet, all I have is a blender and a hand mixer, can’t afford anything else. and then what do you do when they are getting older and need the thicker stuff?? If you can comment my page as well that’d be great thanks!!

    Ladies my son is 4 months and I want to start food at 5 months, but I have a question about how to dethaw the baby food after being frozen. Do you place it in the microwave or leave it at room temp? Has anyone found any neat storage containers for the freezer?

    I also have that book… Super Baby Food. I love it! My son is 4 1/2 months and I am so pumped to start making my own food. I am going to introduce veggies when he is 5 months and I can’t wait to start making my own baby food! I think the book said not to thaw your food out at room temp. You can put it in the fridge overnight to thaw out for the next day. Or you can microwave it slightly to thaw it.
