What I've been doing is freezing tablespoon size portions of food in Glad Press and Seal wrap. I love it, because you can actually press out most of the air and then freeze it. I don't bother with the ice cube method, because the food will get freezer burn if I don't remember to place the cubes in a plastic bag right away, and it can also start to absorb other freezer flavors...funky. Plus, the food is frozen in little piles, which is quick to thaw, as opposed to a thick cube. I just place the frozen food (still wrapped in the Press and Seal) in a bowl of warm water with the faucet trickling more warm water into it, and five minutes later, it's ready to eat! Then, you just squeeze the food into a feeding bowl from the wrap. Really easy, and no microwave use or boiling water!
Can anyone with a July baby post here? I'm new, and I don't know about the etiquette here...
Anyway, I've been reading the posts in this thread, and really enjoy learning about everyone's baby. It's amazing how different everyone is...each baby developing at it's own pace!
