The babies are nearly six months old now… and getting hungry. They have started eating solid food now, so far only baby rice, apple, pear, and carrot. Today I have made them some orange kumara, they can try this out for their dinner.
Sabina has started potty training this week too, its definitely hit-and-miss. But she has become obsessed with wearing her underwear and gets quite upset at bedtime when we put her back into a nappy.
She has also taken a serious interest in feeding the babies – and in eating their kai. I might take this as an opportunity to get a few more veges into her too…
BABY FOOD FOR BEGINNERS
Wash, peel and boil the veges… I do one type of vegetable at a time, then freeze them into ice trays. That way I can mix up the meals by selecting from the different ice cube veges.
Once the veges are boiled soft, put aside about half of the cooking water and blend/ pulse the veges until smooth. Add in more of the cooking water if you need to. Once blended smooth, pour into ice cube trays and smooth off with a spatula.
Freshy made baby food is good in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
I then get out a couple of cubes, defrost them and mix them with some baby formula and baby rice cereal. Yummo.
