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.


Yum, yum green beans

12 Oct

Various people who have way more experience with kids (i.e., the pediatrician, Hadley’s daycare provider, other moms) have told us that Hadley would probably not like green beans. Howewver, they told us that she would love pears and apples and she just barely tolerates them. Before buying lots of green beans to make her food, I grabbed a small packet and she loves them. She screamed for more after she had eaten one portion size.


They were so good- Hadley even tried to eat them off her bib.


She might not like them next month but they are certainly her favorite right now.
