|My son’s first “solid” meal (Sweet Potatoes)|
Since before my son was born I knew I was going to feed him my own home made baby-food. I knew preparing it myself was going to give me complete control over what went in his mouth. I also knew I wanted to introduce him to a wide variety of food and specially local organic vegetables and fruits.
What I didn’t really know was which tool I was going to use to prepare it. I mean you don’t need to buy a system to be able to successfully make your own and I am not saying you should. I just want to share my experiences with the one product I was introduced to by a friend. My friend and I ordered our Baby Bullets a couple of months ago. We took advantage of their buy one get one free promotion and we each got one.

I have been using my Baby Bullet for almost a month now and here are my impressions:
What I loved
-All of their cups and accessories are BPA-free, Phthalate-free and Bisphenol A-free!
– Their little cookbook is amazing, it has step by step instructions on how to use the system, recipes, feeding schedule recommendations and other tips to make your baby’s transition to solids an easy one.
-The date-dial storage cups are great because you know exactly how fresh your food is.
-The batch tray’s individual servings pop-out easily when frozen.
-The storage tray is great to keep everything organized in your fridge
-Easy press down and twist activation of the motor
-The happy faces in the little cups are super cute and my son smiles when he sees them
What I would change
-The very first times I used it the motor had this strange smell. I can only describe it as a strong burnt smell. It is now gone but it was pretty strong for a while.
-The batch tray had a very strong fiber-glass smell. I was not able to use it until I left it airing for a couple of days and the smell was gone. I would recommend opening the box and washing everything right away and leaving the batch tray out to air before using it for the first time.
So far I have been using it a lot so I am happy with my investment. It takes me literally about 5 minutes to prepare 4 day’s worth of food and it is great that it comes with the storage cups as well. I would recommend it to any moms looking for a system to make their own baby-food.
