My daughter is 7 mos old today. I started out making her baby food. I love it! It is so easy to make large batches and freeze them in ice cube trays, then you just pop out one or two for a meal. Super easy. I use either my food processor, or I have a small 2 cup chopper from GE that holds about two cups, I just add water and this is sooo simple to use. There is a great book out called Super Baby Foods, it is a wealth of information, on how to make your own cereal, a month by month guide to new foods you can introduce to baby. This book was very informational, and I highly recommend it to anyone making their own baby food, it has such great ideas!
