    Default Making own or bought baby food for #2+ baby

    With DS1 I made 99% of his food and the other 1% was bought for when we were out and there was no here to store/heat food. Anyway now with DS2 I find it so time consuming to make all the food I did with DS1. I like to make and freeze vegies, fruits, soups, casseroles, etc. A few times I have resorted to baby food as an easy option this time around.
    How common is it for 2nd time + mums to do this, lol
    Some of the baby foods, like Organic bubs have some really nice natural products!

    I planned to make baby food for bub #2, as it just didn't work with bub #1 (he had swallowing issues). But my dd could swallow virtually anything from early on so she has had very few purees and mostly eaten a variation on what we eat and if it's not suitable then I give her a store bought puree of whatever, but that's pretty rare these days. I wouldn't say we did BLW as such as I do feed her and I do mash up the food sometimes, but it's usually fresh stuff and it's pretty no fuss stuff too.

    Yeah I find veggies and fruit easy as I steam veggies most nights. It's more 'meals' that contain meat, chicken, couscous, ground pasta etc I find more time consuming making from scratch. Once he's over 9/10m I think it will be easier to use slightly modified family meals!

    Is BLW more common 2nd time round due to less fear of choking? I'm still a tad nervous as DS is getting over a cough and very flemmy (gagging easily because of that)What are some easy to handle ideas?

    We're doing BLW as well. DS is 7 months on Friday and he eats the same as us just a night later. He has dinner at 5pm and we don't eat till 6pm. So I save a portion for him from what we have for dinner and h has it for his dinner the next night.

    Hi Singa, yes, I purchased all food for DS2! He loved it and it meant I could cope lol. It wasn't long before he was eating with the rest of us- well before 12 months, so really, it was only for a few months.

    I think it pretty normal to do that. I am on bub number six and I do a mixture as I know I am not a supermum.
