If you haven't already, make sure to check out the first part to this series that I started. If my first blog about the homemade baby food I make I showed how I freeze and store the purees. Ill add a link to make it easier to find!
When introducing baby food make sure to only introduce one food at a time. I allow 3 days of introducing the same food before I introduce another. In those 3 days I'm checking to make sure my baby does not have a reaction. Making sure there's no rash, constipation, diarrhea, or any other signs of a food reaction.
Again I am not pediatrician, you should always consult with them first. I am just sharing my recipes and my personal experiences! Enjoy!
Now that we got all of that good stuff out of the way here are the 4 recipes I am going to share with you today!
Once all your puree's are cooled in their ice cube trays on the counter, label & cover them with plastic wrap. Place ice cube trays in the freezer & allow food to freeze overnight.
The following day you can label baggies and dump the cube into baggies. These cube's are good in the freezer for 3- 6 months. 3 months is more desirable.
Thawing: The night before I will get what foods I want to feed my baby the next day. I will place them in separate kiddie bowls and cover with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge to defrost. Then when I am ready to feed my baby I will warm the puree for 7 seconds in the microwave. I then stir the puree and check for hot spots.
If you are using rice cereal try mixing one of the fruit puree's in with the rice cereal!
