Re: How would you handle this?
We do purees and finger foods, and I love our Baby Bullet! In fact, my daughter loves purees and is a little picky about what she'll eat with her hands (so much BLW foods are slippery and she gets mad). Since our family eats tons of pureed soup (a few times a week on occasion), it's actually been easy for us to do some purees along with some other foods she can pick up, often in the same meal. If you don't want it, I'm sure someone will happily by your Baby Bullet from you. You can always make smoothies and other things down the road if you decide to keep it.
