Baby Z is growing up so fast and he gets cuter each day. Finally, he can smile consistently, laugh and play and I’m so thankful the maternal love is starting to kick in. Oops… It’s a bit late but you know the saying, Better late than never! Think I spent his first few months just trying to cope with 2 kids so I’m perpetually cross that he has to feed every 3 hours! I couldn’t wait till his next nap so I can have my hands free to do other stuff. Terrible… I know!
But now that Z is getting bigger, this means feeding just got more complicated! More stuff to bring out, more things to prepare. I absolutely salute my friend who lovingly prepares every meal with fresh-from-market ingredients! I’m sorry, I just can’t. I’m a big fan of batch-freezing all my purée food. This means I buy a big bag of fruit (e.g. a whole rockmelon or a big bag of apples), spend 20 minutes peeling, gutting, coring, slicing, blending and freezing them in ice cubes! So whenever I need to prepare a meal, I’ll pop out whatever I need in nice, ready proportions and have them ready to mix into his cereal twice a day. Yippee!! So convenient.
Just be careful about getting BPA-free if you’re concerned about those things.
