So to begin I feel like I should say that Reid is my second child and when I had my first I made not one ounce of baby food. That’s not to say that I didn’t want my first to have the freshest, tastiest food, but Auntie Jenna, aka supermom extraordinare, was already making for Addison so of course she made for Ella too. So, now I am left with the predicament of how to make baby food!
Now, 3 years later, I have another baby and I have run into a problem…Jenna didn’t have another baby with me. Though Jenna offered to once again be supermom extraordinare and make Reid’s food, seeing as she is the busiest person I know, I couldn’t take her up on that (even though I really wanted to). Instead she gave me the Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker and wished me luck!
How to make baby food (for dummies)
So it was me and my Baby Brezza, which very quickly became my new best friend. It makes the baby food making process so easy that even me, the mom who has on multiple occasions messed up macaroni, can do it. Today I made sweet potatoes and here’s what I did;
- Peel the potato
- Cut it into cubes
- Stick in the Baby Brezza
- Hit the steam and blend button 6 times (to get a total of a 30 minutes of steaming)
- I walked away! In fact, I took Reid to music and I got home he had delicious sweet potato for lunch!
Other reasons why the Baby Brezza rocks
The machine doesn’t make a huge batch which I like because that way if your kid doesn’t like the food you made, you don’t feel like you wasted a ton of time making food that now doesn’t get eaten. Fun fact: Reid hates peas. Doesn’t matter what I mix them with, the kid won’t eat them. But since it took me all of 2 minutes to make them I didn’t feel bad throwing them out. The other thing I love is how little time it takes. I’m not sure where the time goes, but I feel like I blink and the day is over. So the fact that it takes me less than 3 minutes to make food for Reid is a huge bonus.
To all the moms out there to whom making your own baby food seems like an insurmountable task, from one of those moms to another I am telling you the Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker makes it a simple, easy, even enjoyable experience.
