Hadley does not like my cooking

15 Oct

I love to cook and knew that making baby food would just be part of my weekly routine. Not sure if I made a mistake by offering Hadley the organic jarred version first but my logic was to see what she liked, and then make her favorite foods from scratch. I think this plan has backfired. Last week I made her acorn squash and she was not so keen on it but I chalked it up to her never having had it and maybe the texture was a little strange. This week I steamed fresh organic carrots and pureed them to the same consistency of the Gerber version and she nicely spit them into the sleeve of her onesie. I tried several bites and each time she would lean over and let them fall onto her sleeve. After half the serving of carrots was all over her- I switched to the Gerber version and she ate every last bite. Now, I have 12 servings of carrots that I guess I will keep in the freezer for a few weeks and see if she changes her mind about homemade baby food.
