As we have established in earlier posts, I can be sort of lazy when it comes to certain aspects of parenting. It’s not that I don’t want the very, very best for my baby…because you all know I do. I want better than the best for that handsome little man.
But…I am truly a child of convenience. I admit it. I can’t help it. It’s just who I am.
I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to try the cloth diapers again. I have friends who swear by them and I know that the products I have will be fantastic. I just have to put in the hours figuring it out and getting it to work.
And I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to make my own baby food. But so far, that’s been a bust. We have the Beaba Babycook , which is a fantastic little machine that steams and purees food for your wee one. It’s extremely easy to use and I love the idea of whipping a batch of veggies for the Wonderbug that J and I are going to have for dinner anyway. But I am not a chef. And I am not uber creative when it comes to food. So we’ve been chowing down on the Earth’s Best Organics and some occasional Gerber food. If I’m going to BUY baby food, I really prefer organic since I am not a fan of all the hormones and other weird additives that go into most foods.
But I need recipes. I need to know what foods can actually go together. I didn’t realize that yellow squash is not so yummy for babies…got to stick with the butternut. Oooops. I had a colleague recommend zucchini and apples so we might try that tonight. I tried to smash up a banana last night with breast milk but the lumps made him gag. I guess I jumped the gun on some textured stuff. We’ll stick to the purees for now.
What do you all make for your baby? Pass it on.
