I recently made the decision that I am going to (attempt) make baby food for Sloane.
I decided this for a few reasons:
1) CHEAP! I’m all about saving money if I can and this will be a great way to try and do just that!
2) I can make up to a month’s worth of food at one time.
3) It will be healthier for her. I haven’t been able to breastfeed so if I can atleast try and give her some food that’s good for her, I’m going to do just that!
I actually attended a baby food making class at a Yoga center. You might recall my visit to this yoga center to take a prenatal yoga class… remember my attempt at being cool and hip? My… how that went downhill quickly!
I was excited about the class because I was hoping they would really get down and dirty and show me the ins-and-outs to making my own baby food.
I forgot though that even though I tried ‘cool and hip’ and failed miserably, I was still surrounded by the typical yoga moms… the ones that really are cool and hip. These gals are all sitting Indian style, with their coffees or stainless steel water bottles in hand (while my uncool, un-Earth friendly self carried in a plastic water bottle. Shame!) and all sitting close together because ofcourse, they all know each other!
Besides the fact that I felt out-of-place (as usual) and these women have 7-month old babies, are still breastfeeding and can’t decide if they should start feeding their baby solids yet (while I’m bottle feeding, have a 3-month old and would start feeding her solids tomorrow if I hadn’t heard that I probably shouldn’t do that!), I did gather quite a bit of information and came home feeling very confident in this decision I had made about making Sloane’s food.
The instructor in the class suggested using a Magic Bullet (if we had one) to make the baby food, which I thought was a fantastic idea. She said there was no need to go out and by a special baby food processor, which makes sense especially when one of my reasons for making baby food is to try and save money!
And then I saw an informercial…
An infomercial for a Baby Bullet.
I know, I know… there is no point! I can save my money and just use my blender that will do the job.
But our blender doesn’t come with batch trays, storage trays, date-dial storage cups, two different types of blade, a cookbook with great recipes… who WOULDN’T want this?
OK, maybe a year ago, a Baby Bullet wouldn’t be something I would be begging to show up on my doorstep…
But my life has changed alot in a year’s time. I moved 10 hours away from home to a place that thinks 20 degrees is warm (I hate to say that I agree!), had a baby who has yet to spend more than 5 minutes outside and my dog has turned into an indoor king.
So the fact that I’m overly excited about a miniature food processor made specifically for baby food making just doesn’t seem as strange to me as it might have in my former life!
Now if only QVC’s ‘In the Kitchen with David’ would feature this special device on the show, my dad would buy it for me in a second!
Anyone know how I can reach this David character?
