Banana baby food
The regular price was $9.99. Because apparently there is a new box out, this set is on clearance for $7.99. I had a 20% off any baby item (with exclusions) coupon, so I got it for $6.40 plus tax.
It had been sitting on the counter for a while before I got around to trying it. Another good reason why I chose the smaller investment.
I used this soft banana, smashed it up in a bowl with a fork, and put it in 3 containers. This gave me 1.5 oz. servings in each. They hold up to 2 oz. and have measurements on the side, which I love. If you want a comparison, the stage 1 store bought food is 2.5 oz. and stage 2 is 3.5 oz.
I froze these 3 because I wanted to see how they were defrosted. I placed it in the refrigerator the day before I wanted to use it. Before feeding, I opened the lid and warmed in the microwave for 20 seconds. It was luke warm and prince charming loved it, right down to the last bite.
I don't think you necessarily need a set like this one though, I don't see why you couldn't wash and reuse the plastic baby food containers from the store or use an ice cube tray like I've read about. It was an impulse purchase, but I do like it. I'll update you when I try some other varieties of food.
