Okay so, as many of you know, Jameson took food as a joke at first. He would NOT open his mouth or he would turn his head away when we would try to feed him😅. He also got extremely fussy around that time so we decided to give him a little break before reintroducing food.
I probably gave him a good month break before we picked it back up again and things went way smoother this time around🙌. He was able to sit up better and actually opened his mouth lol. He is now 8 months and we are doing mostly puréed foods and starting a little baby led weaning. I do make all of his baby food and I’m not going to lie it can be tough when you have a 20 pound baby that has to be in your arms 24/7😅. However I do try and meal prep everything when J’s dad is home! Anywho here are all the things I could NOT live without when it comes to all things baby food🙆.
We use the kitchen-aid mini food processor and omg you guys. This. Is. amazing. Honestly, it’s so small, it doesn’t take up like any space. And it’s so adorable I don’t mind leaving it on the counter all the time🤗. It’s also super easy to clean. I specifically only use this for baby food because, first time mom syndrome😂.
Okay so, I’m in love with these Oxo glass baby food jars! They are ADORABLE. We decided to go with glass baby food jars because sometimes plastic can carry unwanted chemicals. These also come with little trays which make it so much easier to organize in our freezer!
Right now I am hand washing all J’s bottles and baby food jars/spoons. I’m sure when he starts eating more real food that will change but for right now it’s totally do-able! We are currently using Babyganics foaming dish and bottle soap. It just gives me such piece of mind knowing that there are no harsh ingredients❤️.
This has been so perfect for us because we are currently living in an apartment. We have the Graco foldable highchair. It’s so easy to fold and put out of the way (I literally fold it up one-handed)! It’s also super easy to take apart and clean as well.
We are definitely loving these organic Burt’s Bees bibs! They don’t have buttons or Velcro on the back so it’s super comfortable for J. They are really soft and not stiff like a couple other ones we’ve tried. Definitely our fave so far🙌!
These are just a couple of our current faves. However, my little baby isn’t so little anymore and as I start to transition J from puréed food to more solid/finger foods I know I’m going to need a different array of baby food products. If any of you have any recommendations for sippy cups/bottles/bowls/baby eating utensils or anything of that nature, I would love to hear about it!
