We have made the personal decision to make all of our baby food rather than by the jarred type. So far, it has been really easy and I can't undestand why so many people were so discouraging to us in the beginning. (not here of course) We got all sorts of comments telling us that it was going to be so hard, it was too time consuming, we were being to "protective" ( I don't even get that one) and that is was just a dream that we could actually do that and not have to buy the jarred food. Well, all I have been doing is pureeing the stuff that we already are eating. It's worked out fine and our son seems to LOVE it. His favorites have been peas, papaya and mango. I just don't get why others think that is so hard. It literally just takes a few moments each day to prepare his meals. Anyone else out there doing this? Perhaps we can share some ideas and tips.
