Since he only eats 1Tbsp TOTAL a day of anything other than breastmilk that would last us MONTHS! So I decided to freeze it. I was already planning to freeze some green bean and sweet potato purees that we tried him on and had a bunch left. But I couldn't decide what to freeze them in. I was thinking ice cube trays but I couldn't find mine. Since I'm not big on wasting money I started going through my cabinets. And then I remembered my regular size and mini sized silicone muffin "pans". Eureka!
I put about 1/4 cup of yogurt in each regular muffin cup and 1/8 cup (2 Tbsp) of the veggie purees in each of the mini cups.
Then I slapped some Press 'n Seal over them and popped them in the freezer.
When they came out I just popped them out, put each kind in its own sandwich size freezer bag, labeled them with a sharpie and put the little bags all in one big freezer bag. That was easy!!!
(While I prepped his food R entertained himself with my dirty kitchen rug, instead of all the nice fun kitchen utensils I had out for him. Love this kid!)
If you make and store your own baby food what is your system?
