    Default Target sale catalogue

    Targets latest catalogue has a Bellini baby food maker. It steams/blends/warms/defrosts for $69 save $70. Anyone have one? Is it any good? Expecting my 2nd bub & would really like the whole starting solids thing to be a little less time consuming.
    Thanks

    Have you heard of baby led weaning? No need for purees.

    For the price I would give it a shot. If its no good at least it's covered by the warranty. I paid more than that for a blender to do it.

    Personally baby led weaning does not interest me in the slightest and I made all my babies food and still do. I know they are getting the right amounts and they love it!

    That's fine, I figure you would have if you hang out on bubhub but thought I'd ask anyway just in case you hadn't

    You still make all your babies food with BLW and as they feed themselves they get the right amounts of food too!

    I wouldn't bother. My ds needed super thin purees & nothing I made suited him til 10 months of age (he'd choke on homemade purees). Then with my dd it's been the opposite - she didn't mind chunky puree (aka mash) from 7 months. I don't do BLW with her, but she's eaten a lot of finger food from early on and otherwise I've just mashed what we've had on the spot. Not really bothered with pureeing anything and storing it. I had fully planned on doing it and I thought I'd buy one of those machines and now I'm super glad I didn't bother.

    I wouldn't bother with it personally i would just get a good stick blender i reckon they do much the same job and at least it's very handy when bub isn't on purees anymore
