One of the most hot button topics in the mom world is, what we feed our kids. Formula or breastmilk? Organic or whatever is the first thing you pick up off of the shelf? I’m sure you’ve heard a million and one different opinions on what you should go with.
When it comes to baby food, I tend to want to make my own. Not necessarily for all the various helicopter mom reasons, but honestly because I feel like my baby gets bored. Also, it looks good. (kidding…kinda.) I’m not opposed to using store bought food, either. After dealing with a picky two year old, I feel like whatever they’ll eat, feed ’em.
I used to use the babymoov sytem, and my God that was a headache. It had two different canisters, one to steam the fruits and veggies, and one to blend.
It was twice the work, and twice the clean up. What mom on this earth wants to put up with that? Not this one.
This time around, I decided to try the Baby Brezza Baby Food Maker. It’s an all-in-one baby food maker, and God’s gift to mom’s who make their own food. That thing is a beast.
How to Use It
All you have to do is fill the water tank with water, place the fruits and veggies you want inside, and use the lcd screen to pick the right settings for the food you want to make, and boom! Homemade baby food!
It’s super easy to understand once you run through the directions once.
It’s an all-in-one system, so it makes for less cleanup afterwards. Also, I feel like you can lose some of the precious food that you just steamed, trying to transfer it over to the blender in some other systems. With this one, you get all the nutrition, because all the work is done in one container.
It has pouches that you can buy separately to store your creations in. Now you can take it with you! One tip I would give though, is to write the time you made it on the pouch, or in your phone. This can help avoid giving your baby food that may not be good any more, since there aren’t any preservatives in it like store bought food.
The only things I would have to say that aren’t the BEST are that you have to figure out how long some of the more sturdy items (i.e. carrots, potatoes, etc…) take to steam on your own. They include a guide, but it only includes a few different items.
Another thing, that may just be user error, is I had to hold the blend button in order to blend the food. Now, it blended super quickly so that wasn’t a huge issue, but it’s something to consider.
Last, but not least, is the price. It’s currently running for $159.99, which is a bit pricey for some. A little tip though, I got mines at Marshall’s for $49.99! You’d be surprised at the baby gear you can find there for super cheap! Also, Amazon still carries the older model for $99.95, which I’m sure works just as well.
All in all, I’d give this blender a 9/10! I genuinely enjoy using it, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for a baby food blender! If you’re interested in ordering one, you can pick it up here! Let me know what some of your fave baby blenders are in the comments!
