Making baby food isn't as hard as you think! A few simple steps using a Baby Food Maker is all it takes!
This may be TMI, but my baby was very regular ... until we introduced cereal. One ounce of breast milk and a tablespoon or so of oatmeal cereal for supper changed all that. It scared me. Is she constipated? Is this normal? She's had cereal for a while now, so ... it's time for something new. I had all intentions of introducing veggies next, but applesauce seems like a good thing to help "move things along". So, without further adieu, here's how I made applesauce!
First, you'll need some supplies/ingredients.
ice cube tray
- Peel, core, and cut up the apples into 1/2" pieces.
- Place apples into Baby Food Maker food compartment.
- Pour 125 ml water into the water compartment of the Baby Food Maker.
- Set the Baby Food Maker to steam (takes about 20 minutes).
- Once the apples have been steamed, puree the apples.
Viola! Homemade baby applesauce. I served my daughter about 1 ounce and froze the rest in an ice cube tray. The next day, I removed the applesauce cubes and put them in a labelled freezer bag for later. Remember, once you thaw any baby food, do not refreeze.
