Today I am going to be a guest on a Charlotte morning show! The producer asked me to come discuss making homemade baby food. Hopefully I will be able to share some information, without embarrassing myself! Since I will be chatting all about the subject on the show, I thought I’d share more tips and recipes for how to make homemade baby food squeeze pouches and purées. I made the baby food for both of our boys, and taking the time to do so was something I never regretted.
UPDATE: Here is the link to the TV clip!
Making their baby food saved us money, and it allowed me to know exactly which foods they were eating. Even if you decide to just make it a few times, I would encourage you to try! If your baby is between 6 months and a year old, these purées can be so helpful. And the squeeze pouches can be used when your child is older than a year as well.
I have two posts from the past year with more helpful info about making baby food:
- This post has the method to make plenty of different flavor varieties.
I wanted to share some updates and more pictures of the process. Plus I wrote out two more recipes, one for Berry Peach Oatmeal puree, and one for Butternut Squash Spinach puree.
The main item you’ll need to make baby food squeeze pouches is this Infantino Squeeze Station and a box of extra squeeze pouches.
If you have any questions about baby food, feel free to ask me in the comments. I know that making your own baby food can seem intimidating, but it really is quite straightforward. And having a freezer full of food to feed a crying, hungry baby is a great way to help ease the stress of parenthood!
