    As someone who did BLS with her kid, I did find that the little jars of babyfood were really good for one purpose: letting grandma get her kicks spoon-feeding the babe.

    This was great entertainment all around. When DS was finished eating, he always took one more bite . . . which he then spewed EVERYWHERE while blowing a great big raspberry. Spoonfeeding grandmas sit *very close* to babe.

    Anyhow, we only spoonfed purees at home when that's what our main meal was: curried squash soup, stew, mashed potatoes, etc. We let him have his own portion and a spoon (if he wanted it), but we usually got a few tastes into his mouth, too.

    Actually, even in conjunction with BLS they can come in handy. Pureed fruit can be mixed into plain yogurt or oatmeal or spread on toast instead of jam. They have no sugar or additives unlike flavored yogurts or jams.
    We made it one year!

    The additives in the jars make me . BLS are great - DS eats almost anything now!!

    Grandmas just don't get BLS no matter how many times i explain. As i talk they nod their heads and act as though they totally agree with the reasoning behind BLS...but still, they don't get it. I finally had to break down and get some jars for when he is with the grandmas. they just love to spoon feed babies!
