.. Make your own baby food.
I'm not trying to be snarky or judgmental or anything, I am legitimately curious at the reasons why not.
To me, it seems that it's not all that time consuming. You can mash up or puree a little of what you're having that night anyway. Or you can spend 1 hour a week making up a bigger batch of a few different foods for freezing and thawing later.
It seems more healthy since you know exactly what is going into it and there are no preservatives, etc. (I honestly don't know that much about jarred baby food though so correct me if I'm wrong) And I've heard that once you advance to "stage two" or "graduates" or whatever there's a lot of filler stuff.
Plus the obvious - cheaper!
I suppose we might have a few jars on hand for travelling and stuff. Kind of like even though most of DH and my meals are homemade we do buy convenience foods for nights when I'm lazy or don't have time, or for travelling, etc.
It's honestly never occurred to me to buy jarred baby food, it's not like I am "choosing" to do homemade because of some environmental or deep-rooted belief system, it just seemed obvious that that is what we'd do.
So for any of you ladies that are for sure not going to make your own baby food ... please do share your reasons.
Oh! I just thought ... since I know not everyone will want to comment, maybe a vote so we can get an idea of how many July mamas are doing one vs the other.[Poll]
