Make Your Own Organic Pureed Baby Food
Speaking of food and feeding your baby, I loved this solution to feeding your infant who is starting on solids. Instead of buying the bottled, processed Gerber products, lots of progressive, natural parenting moms have fed their babies pureed vegetables which they make in bulk and freeze in ice cube trays in the freezer. See specific instructions from Yves, mother of 10 month-old Dylan on this blog post.
I would also say that when you go to heat the frozen food cubes, I would do it in a glass container in hot water, the same way you would heat a baby bottle. If you went to all the trouble to make organic baby food puree, go the whole way and heat it in the least nutrient-killing manner. Avoid the microwave and plastic materials which leach toxins into food when heated.
