Starting Solids

Holy moly am I ever behind on news. Like, months behind. Back when William was about 5 1/2 months old, we decided to start him on some “solid” foods. The reasoning behind it was that it may help with his reflux and spitting up, which is kind of an old school idea, suggested by an elderly pediatrician we don’t normally see- but, oh well. We did it.

…and. He’s not a fan.

Let me clarify, he is a lover of fruits, and oatmeal. Anything else and he dramatically makes gagging sounds and faces. He also legit projectile vomited quinoa cereal all over me yesterday, in fact. Eli says he doesn’t blame him for that though.

I knew I wanted to make my own baby food again, simply because I don’t think it’s a hard thing to do, and it saves you so much money. I could buy one jar of bananas for a dollar…..or make my own for like, 15 cents? Uh. No brainer.

I was really stoked to be able to try out this Mumi&Bubi Solid Starter Kit, which are specially designed for freezing large batches of baby food. For example, I used two large-ish sweet potatoes, and filled up two entire trays, which is more than 42 servings (of 1 oz)!

My total (organic) sweet potato investment was $2.39, making each serving cost less than 5 cents.

Each tray has a lid to ensure the food is kept hygienic and protected from freezer burn. The lids have grooves for easy stacking in your freezer. Parents often use one tray for fruit and the other for vegetables. They are made in New Zealand from non-toxic, virgin PP5 polyproylene and are top-shelf dishwasher-safe. For your peace of mind, the freezer tray material is certified free of phthalates, BPA and PVC.

And the best part is that the Mumi&Bubi Solids Starter Kit is super easy to use. You simply press one side of the cube, and the rounded bottom design makes them pop out very easily. No twisting or cracking ice cube trays, anymore! I have had these in my freezer now for over a month, and there isn’t a single sign of freezer damage, either. This is the perfect baby shower gift for any mom-to-be who plans to make their own baby food.

I do have one tip, though: make sure your baby actually likes the food before making and freezing a ton of it. However, he did actually enjoy the sweet potato tonight, as long as I mix it in with oatmeal. He has a picky palate, what can I say?
