Because your baby eats very little each time (when compared to adults), it is quite a hassle to prepare the food meal by meal. I sure can’t see myself preparing 60ml of food for each meal. Since I feed C the same food for at least 4 days, I prepare the food and freeze them in batches, enough to last 4-7 days.
There are many freezer trays available in the market. I am not doing a comparison or promoting any particular brand so I am going to share with you what I do.
We were gifted quite an amount of shopping vouchers so we decided to buy Beaba freezer tray
to complete the collection. You will be able to store 7 portions of 60ml in each tray. What I really like about this particular tray is that there are 7 portions in each tray – 1 for each day of the week. Each portion can also be popped out easily to be defrosted. When babystingrui was on 1 solids per day, 1 tray was enough for each week. Now that she is taking 2 solid meals each day, I would usually prepare 1 tray of sweet and 1 tray of savory/soup porridge. This way, our little friend can enjoy homemade food everyday without me having to cook everyday. It also makes food preparation and storage a lot more easier. When the time comes when C is eating a lot more, such freezer trays might not be the best option anymore. We’ll see how things go then, but for now, cooking in batches and freezing them works best for us right now!
