      argh... sorry you went the baby food way. I thought that as a food lover you'd be eager to go the "baby led weaning" way.

      What a shame one cannot be a food lover and make baby food! In my world, no such dichotomy exists.

      In my world, I also don't tell people that they're feeding their babies the wrong way, because they're not following the approach that I do [See also: "You're doing it wrong!"]

      You tell her Deb!

      What an ignorant and annoying comment! You do what feel right for you and your baby and ignore the peanut gallery.

      I love the way everything is neatly stacked!

      And that comment: best ignored!

      you know, it really is a shame that some people can't share ideas without putting someone else's down. i don't have kids and might keep it that way but i still find it interesting all the different methods that have come along.

      anyway, glad you took the jump, deb, and you know the majority totally supports and appreciates your efforts :D

      in related news, i actually used to make fruit 'baby food' like you and mix it with plain organic yogurt. then i would freeze them in cupcake liners. you know what it was? "ice cream" for my dogs ;)

      adorable!!!! would it be too forward to make these for myself? :P

      ok don't kill me if this is a stupid question but you freeze it just because you make it in bulk right? like if you made a small batch you could just feed it to the baby right away?

      Nails: As Deb explains here, yes, the freezing is just for storage purposes. It's not necessary to the actual preparation.

      Huzzah for homemade baby food. One of the biggest upsides, aside from taste/freshness, has got to be huge cost savings.

      Also, that asinine first comment reminds me of a hilarious excerpt from The Kid: "We had been told to put D.J. to sleep on his back, not his stomach, to prevent sudden infant death syndrome. Our mothers told us to put him to sleep on his stomach, not his back, to prevent sudden infant death. We'd been told not to put our baby in a playpen, or his brain would turn to mush. Our mothers pointed out that we'd spent time in playpens and our brains weren't mush." How did any of us survive to adulthood?

      Seriously, I'm pretty sure David Lebovitz survived an infancy of baby food. Yeesh.

      Thanks Anne, nailnanails, had missed your comment -- You can serve it fresh. Thing is, the baby eats so little at at time in the beginning that you inevitably make way more than you need. To me, from the freezer (defrosting in the last 24, frozen right after cooking) is fresher-tasting than having been in the fridge for a week. But, there's no wrong way to do it, that is just how I approach it.

      Love the colors and the neatness! My own baby is only 3 months old. I already look forward to making all kinds of baby food for him! What an adventure it will be for him!

      Of course as we all know, "baby-led weaning" can never mean the baby wants some soft food. It's not like babies are different from each other or anything. *eyeroll*
