I just want to mention how much I LOVE making baby food for Miles. When a friend recommended the Beaba baby food maker I thought it sounded really cool so I registered for it. I loved the idea of Miles having fresh food that I made for him. Plus, making your own food is supposed to be a lot less expensive and I love saving money! But, I didn't really think I'd get it (thanks again SFD group, are any of you even reading this?) so I didn't worry too much about all the work I'd have to do.
Let me just set the record straight though -- making baby food sounds like a ton more work than it actually is. I had no idea it would be this easy. Granted, so far I've only made a few simple things with one ingredient, but it takes all of 5 minutes to chop up carrots or two apples or a sweet potato. Then the Beaba thing does the steaming.
Then it's 2 minutes of blending and 2 minutes to divide it in the handy baby food cups the SFD team also bought for me. And wha-la! Miles has fresh food for a week!
I'm not sure if it's the Beaba food processor that makes it super easy. Or if it's just pretty easy to puree some veggies. But either way I know one baby who's appreciative!
