After having two kids already, I’ve learned a few things about what to do and what not to do when it comes to raising babies. I have honestly learned so much in the six years since my son has been born, that sometimes I look back and wish someone would have told me some of these things earlier. Like the idea that cloth diapers may not be so hard and can actually save quite a bit of money, and that I can make my own baby food that is healthier than store bought…and really easy too!

We are going to go ahead and try out cloth diapers this time around, but I’ve also discovered that making  my own baby food is really easy. I was recently sent a Baby Bullet to try out, and have to say…it was super simple to use!

Using the Baby Bullet

Using the baby bullet is seriously as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4.  You just need to steam your food (you can boil too but I prefer steaming), add your food to the Baby Bullet with a little water, taste for good measure, and store in the convenient freezer cups or dial and serve cups. It really couldn’t be easier!  Just one note…make sure your blending base is screwed in tight. I didn’t double check that mine was completely tight the first time and water starting leaking out. As soon as I tightened it, problem solved and we were good to go.

Baby Bullet

The taste of nothing but pure vegetables couldn’t be better either. My daughter loved these carrots right out of the batch bowl!

The great thing about the Baby Bullet, other than the fact that it is really easy to use, is that it comes with a ton of tools and a really handy manual and cookbook. The manual/cookbook lays out exactly how to prepare each type of food, and when it is best to start trying that type of food with baby. They really make the whole process foolproof for you.

I am thrilled with the idea of feeding my baby fresh foods instead of something that has been sitting on store shelves for who knows how long, and since my sister is also expecting this year, I’m going to convince her to try out the idea of fresh baby food as well!


So tell us….

Did you make fresh foods for your baby or would you ever give it a try?
