So you want to make baby food recipes, huh? I see the appeal of homemade baby food, trust me, I did it myself. I also cannon balled into the land of homemade baby food thinking it would be easy. Thinking I wouldn’t be sleep deprived. I assumed I wouldn’t have an infant hanging from my teat while I attempted this Supermom-esque task. If Jessica Alba can do it I should be able to, right? Riiiggghht!
I stumbled into my mission with my steamer, pans, cutting board, knife, spoon(s), strainer, ice cube trays, ziploc bags, plastic wrap, and my blender. Making baby food recipes wasn’t a walk in the park. I did it because it was cheaper than buying store bought baby food and made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I’m all about the warm and fuzziness when it comes to my kid. Except, it was a lot of work to make baby food and my blender died in the middle of a batch. Baby food was messy BEFORE I fed it to Michael. All I could think about as I stood in my kitchen chopping, straining, and scooping was the sleep I could be catching up on. Wahhhh!
