When we were just beginning this baby food process...I searched high and low for reviews on "making your own baby food". I've written many times on the process I went through, as well as some of the things I found. One thing I have to mention though....is the importance of having a good blender. We've only been doing solid foods for about a month now, but I've already come to realize the importance of our blender. Before we started, I searched and found one called the Tribest PB-200 Personal Blender. It's much like other products on the market, but the reviews I read were much better! I got it, and I'm SOO glad that I did. So far, it's done a wonderful job at pureeing and grinding up the food that I've made for Kaelyn. It's powerful and so easy to use. Something that's convenient is important for any mom who is busy during the day, and that's probably what I like most about this blender. As time goes on, we'll be making more and more foods in there, so I'm glad that I have a quality machine to use. I would recommend any mom try it if they are looking to make their own baby food like I do.
