Baby Food


So for my first son I made his food when he started eating now I have a 6 month old and when he started eating I made him his food also but the convenience side of me says to buy it and I also don’t have the time like I did with my first and he’s had it only because my husband bought it but I feel bad since I didn’t do that with my first. I know there’s nothing wrong with it but I want to do the same I did with my first. It’s so hard to do the same things you did with your first child and second. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    If you want to start with purée first, then don’t feel bad for buying it!!! I only have one baby and she will be an only child and I STILL never had time to make her food!!! I tried once and then said to myself, “that was a lot of work for an ice cube tray full of butternut squash!!!” I only have so much time in a day, do you spend it with your babies or do you spend it cooking their food!?! So I went with buying organic pouches for a month or so before we launched into finger foods.

    I started making food for my first, but I was working and I had 2 horses. So after about 3 months of making it, my husband and our daughter and I went on a little weekend trip and I had bought the pouches from the store. Wow did I love it! So after about another month of making, I gave up and started buying it lol. Sometimes it can be very grueling, especially when you need to cook it, cool it then purée it and then freeze it. And if you wanted to make mixed flavors, that’s even more work! If you want to make something special, then go for it! But don’t feel like you HAVE to make everything.
