With Caleb, I pretty much made all of his baby food. I found it to be a lot cheaper, but wasn't anti-store brands by any means. It was just more cost-effective for us, and I liked doing it. I would make a big batch at once and fill ice cube trays. Once the food was frozen, I would pop them out and put them in a container with a label on it.
Well, that's just not going to work so well with Abby. See, she only eats 1 teaspoon 4x a day. That's 5 mls....not very much!! One regular ice cube of frozen food would last her about 2 weeks. You can't thaw and refreeze food....which means we would be wasting a lot of food.
So, this time around it is more cost-effective for us to buy food. When I open a can, I put it into this cute little ice cube tray I found that is actually for cocktail drinks. I'm repurposing it. :) Each little cube is just about 2 1/2 mls, so we give Abby 2 at a time.
This makes 60 cubes, which is about 30 feeds for Abby. One container of food fills up all but maybe 5 of the cubes, so that means that one container of baby food will feed Abby for almost a month!
I pop them out and store the little cubes in a small Lock and Lock container (the same size I use for Caleb's sandwiches, actually) and keep them in the freezer.
It's not quite the way most of you do/have done it, but it works for us!
