Yes, I made almost all of DD's baby food. The only time I bought those little jars was when we would be gone, especially overnight-- less hassle to pack and store.

I made 99.99% of Maggie's food. I did buy three jars of the foods you aren't supposed to make yourself (because of nitrates) but she only ate half of one, and I gave the other two away. It only took an hour or two every other week to stockpile all sorts of different flavors, and she transitioned to table food better for it, I believe.

Yep--- 3 kids and I think I bought less than 5 jars of baby food. I just couldn't bring myself to feed them all that processed food with Lord knows what additives in it.

I make most of it. We keep jars around for travel, church, eating out, etc. Ingrid will eat from the table - actually she'll eat anything! :D

I made most of the food for my babies. It was much less costly and I knew exactly what was in it.

Anthony Constantinou | Anthony Constantinou CEO CWM FX says Instead of sitting in front of your child and blowing on the food to cool it down, you could place it in a bowl of cold water.

If you use plastic bowls, simply pop the bowl into the freezer for a few minutes, make sure you keep checking on it.
