Make Your Own Baby Food

We've been making our own baby food here, and it's actually really easy. I thought it'd be kind of a hassle and I wasn't sure if the money we would be saving would be worth it, but it totally is! I've been looking here and here for ideas and tips. We started with a baby favorite, sweet potatoes.

Step 1: Wash and stab a few times with a fork. Wrap in tin foil and bake at 400 for 45 minutes or until soft.
 Step 2: Once cool, cut in half and scoop out all of the meat. Put in a blender with a few ounces of breast milk, formula or water, your choice and blend until smooth. Add more or less liquid to get a good consistency.
 Step 3: Scoop your puree into a clean ice cube tray. Cover with saran wrap and freeze.
 Step 4: Transfer from the tray to a freezer safe bag.
 When your baby's ready to eat, just pop one of your food cubes into the microwave for a few seconds (ours takes 20) and serve! Yum!
