Homemade Baby Food Purees for Pouches

After spending what feels like a million dollars on formula the past several months, I have LOVED making baby food at home for pennies!  Upon strolling the grocery store isles though, I found that you could easily spend another million on pre-made baby food — especially those delicious, easy for on-the-go pouches, most between $1-$2 PER POUCH!!  Even if you wanted to make your own, the majority of baby stores only sell one-time-use pouches like Infantio that still run about $0.25 per pouch, by the time you add in your own food, it’s hard to justify.  ENTER STAGE LEFT – SQUEEZ’EMS!*!*!*!*  These are the only REUSABLE pouches I have found.  At about $8 for two, consider this money well spent!!!


I plan to continue updating this post with my new pouch puree concoctions….I promise you will have some happy little customers!
