    Oh and the book suggests freezing your food in ice cube trays. Then once it is frozen, putting the frozen cubes in ziploc freezer bags. You can put one or two cubes in each bag to make your serving size.

    Wow, I just had to leave a message here: I was given a Beaba baby food cooker/blender for my birthday this weekend and am so totally in love with it! Making my son’s baby food is now so much easier. So if you have $150 to spare, or know someone who wants to buy you a great gift… look them up. My mom got mine at Williams & Sonoma. It’s the best, & I think I’m hooked. 🙂

    I tried the ice cube tray/ziploc method but found that there was ice crystals on the food. Then I found ‘Baby Cubes’ and they are awesome. Google them and you will see them

    Here is a great website for anyone interested in making their own baby food http://wholesomebabyfood.com. Ice crystals are nothing to worry about when it comes to freezing baby food. The crystals are just the liquid freezing not freezer burn. It actually talks about the crystals on this website.

    I thought making your own baby food just sounded so time consuming and difficult, but after coming across the http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com website, I was totally wrong! EXCELLENT website! Also, it’s good to hear that the Baby Cubes work well. I just ordered them yesterday. A friend gave me a baby food processor so that’s what I was going to use, until I read that the Magic Bullet works awesome! I’ve had one for years and never once used it! I think I will try using both and see what’s better.

    redheadmama: Do you really like that baby food maker?? My mom used to work at the call center for Williams Sonoma so she gets a 40% discount until the middle of March and then it ends. She keeps trying to buy that for me, but I felt like that was too expensive and a waste of money when I already have everything I need.

    oh my gosh yeah, I LOVE the Beaba Babycook. I was making baby food using pots on the stove & my food processor, but this is soooo much easier. I don’t have to watch it nonstop, I can start it, leave it, it turns itself off, doesn’t scorch or burn… it makes a good amount — not too much, not too little. It’s perfect. So fast, so easy, so healthy. I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to make baby food. For the last two months I have made food and frozen it (pureed) in ice cube trays, then store the cubes in labled ziplocs in the freezer. Now I am starting to transition DS into eating what we eat. So when I make us chicken, potatoes, and green beans for dinner — I just toss a little plan chicken, plain potato, and beans into the Beaba — turn it on, let it cook, and there you go. Love it!!!
