When we had Addison’s four month check up a few weeks ago, we got the all clear to start her on rice cereal. These past few weeks have been quite the journey for her with getting her acclimated to a different texture and way to eat. By journey, I mean rice cereal everywhere: her hands, face, clothes (somehow even on her pants), my clothes, my hair. It’s really been a great time.
She is still indifferent about the rice cereal but feeding her something besides milk is getting me more and more excited to start her on solids. It’s going to be so fun to learn what she likes and doesn’t like.
I have always known that I wanted to make Addison’s food myself instead of buying little cans of baby food. It makes me feel so much better that I know exactly what is going into the food and it’s so much cheaper since the food is all stuff that we eat on a regular basis anyway. However the thought of making the baby food can be daunting without a baby food maker. I barely cook for myself so I was starting to cringe when I thought of making the food in a food processor then transferring it to a steamer only to have it spit right back in my face when Addison decides she doesn’t like it.
When I got the opportunity to try the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker, it seemed like the stars were aligning for me. I was so relieved to see that this glorious appliance does everything at once and it even has a bottle warmer attached to it (because with as little counter space as we have, we are pretty picky about what we leave on the counters). I can’t wait to put this new food maker to good use because lord knows this puppy will be working round the clock before we know it!
