Three months later, I can't imagine feeding Otto any other way. My mother had given us a bullet blender, which has a special grinding blade. The appliance itself is so tiny and cute...perfect size for churning out micro batches of baby food! Not only do we know exactly what's in our baby food, but we can customize the texture for our new lil' eater. And while I purchased some fancy glass 1-cup containers with lids, my favourite method of storage is old fashioned Bell jelly jars with twisty tops. The perfect system.

** butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, spinach, zucchini, mangos, nectarines, green peas, string beans, peaches, asparagus **
We follow the four day rule, to test for allergies (introduce a new food, then wait four days for an allergic reaction before introducing the next new food). So his list is still growing! Although I'm not sure if we'll see meat on there anytime soon. I am a vegetarian, and as for Otto...well he's still on the fence.
