sweet potatoes baking(ended up cutting them in half about half way through and adding some water to the pan while they cooked the rest of the way)
the Squash were just cut in half and laying in a little bit of water as well, then when they were finished I just scooped out the middle of the of the squash (seeds and all) and put it all in the blender. Pears in the blender
Pears in ice cube trays... i chose these (they are from the dollar tree) b/c they lay flatter than the large square trays & goodness knows we are limited on freezer space
after cubes froze i just popped them out of the tray & vaccum sealed them & marked the date on them..
Before I poured them into the ice cube trays, I took a clean 1st's baby food container and poured some food in just to get an idea of how many cubes make a whole container. Anyways, about 3 of my cubes is one whole 1st container. Which early on she will only eat about 1/2 of a container...
It's really not hard, or time consuming, maybe just a tiny inconvenient when out in town but we will make it work, or keep a small stock of jar baby food (only when it goes on super cheap sale) just to take with us when we go out in town. More to come when she really starts eating some of it... We have already had sweet potatoes and she loves those. When we first started feeding cereal, we did learn to give her half of her bottle, then feed her the cereal on the spoon, then give her the rest of her bottle. To start getting her used to eating off of a spoon. Now she knows what it is and doesn't have a problem with it. :)
