Baby food!!

These days, what gets me going is baby food. Cloth diapers used to be my favorite obsession, but now that Little Toot is inching closer and closer to 6 months?? I can't wait to make her food!!

Ad has had her tastes of baby food and loves (loves!) it... Unless it's Gerber, apparently. The other day she got nibbles of peaches and hated them. Then she got nibbles of bananas and ate them well, but Little Toot turned into BIG TOOTS and we dealt with major gas (and lots of fussing) for two days after the bananas. So we're holding off on food, with the exception of a few nibbles of Plum/Ella's here and there.

And on that note, it's amazing how much pain, tears, and general fussiness can come from one fart.

So there are two baby food makers that I have my eye on: the Beaba Babycook and the Magic Baby Bullet.

A few of my friends have the Babycook and seem to love it. I love it because it steams and seems incredibly easy. You just flip a switch and it does it all. It's pretty pricey, though.. But it seems perfect.

Or the Baby Bullet

Look at those adorable smiley jars to store the food! And those freezer trays that come with it!! As far as I can see, this gadget doesn't stream, but you just add water and push down. VoilĂ ! Baby food! I love that this system comes with all the accessories needed, pretty much. The cups also come with a dial to turn for the date of the month, so you know exactly how old your frozen food is!

Do any of you sweet readers have experience with either? I can't wait to purchase a system and start whipping up meals for our little one!!

  1. We use the Baby Cook and LOVE it. Fortunately it was a gift as I'm not sure we would have paid full price for it... a pot and blender would work just as well. But, I really do love the ease of the Baby Cook.

    No experience with the Baby Bullet... but it sure is cute!

  2. I've had the BabyCook for 3 years and I really like it. It's so easy because you do everything all in one machine. And you can toss it in the dishwasher when you are done. Easy peasy!

  3. Hey Shannon, we have the Babycook and love it ! I usually make 2-3 big batches every week and freeze. It's easy and JJ always seemed to enjoy the good. It is pricy but I think worth it, especially if you plan to have more than one child! :) Jeff bought it for me, and got about 10% off at (I think ) Albee Baby.
