Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Homemade purees

How long do you leave them in the fridge? The little baby cookbook I have says 3 days...anybody leave it longer?

Re: Homemade purees

  • I wouldn't....especially if you mixed formula or milk in. You can freeze portions in ice cube tray and defrost as needed.
  • I don't mix anything but a little water with our pures and I will only leave them in the fridge till the next day or two.
  • I batch cook my purees and store them in 4oz. rubbermaid containers that I freeze. The 4 oz. containers are the same size as baby food jars, so I use one container within about 24 hours (max 48 hours). I wouldn't leave homemade baby food in the fridge past 2 days myself.

    Same here.  We freeze whatever we make.

  • I freeze everything in 2 and 4 oz containers (I use and love my OXO Tot baby food containers) and thaw as needed. I do leave them in the fridge for 3 days, but not longer.
