Things I have learned about baby food and a GIVEAWAY!

It's been a few weeks with my Beaba Babycook and I still love it! I have learned a few things though.

First, don't add formula to your baby food. Just add water. I threw out the bananas I made and thinned with formula because once defrosted, they stank! Not appetizing! With the BabyCook, when you steam the veggies or fruit, you end up with some water at the bottom of the bowl. I just use that to thin my mixes and it makes them smell fresher and much more like real food!

Second, don't overfill your processor! Watery mixes will really go flying when you process them so be careful!

Third, if your mix does have a high water content, don't fill your freezer jars to the top. The mix expands and will pop the top easily.

Liam's favorites are avocado, peas and apple. He is not a fan of carrots but I have read that carrots(even organic) are high in nitrates so I have not pushed them. The next foods on my list to try are bananas(again), butternut squash, sweet potato and pears.

This week I also found another new favorite from Beaba!


I have used other silicone spoons before and they always seemed too big for the baby's mouth so I quickly let them settle to the bottom of my silverware drawer. But these spoons are perfect for a young baby's mouth. The silicone is firm but soft enough that if your little one chomped on it they would not hurt their gums. In fact, once I finish feeding Liam his lunch, I often hand him the spoon to chew on. I even keep one in the fridge to sooth his aching gums.
