I do love to make my own baby food and store it in the freezer. Know what I don't love? Forgetting to take out those little frozen chunks in time for meals.
Since I don't microwave baby food (or just about anything!), I'm left wasting time floating it in a bowl over hot water. While the baby is fussing to be fed. #fail!
But... did you know you can use an electric bottle warmer to prep your baby's food?
NUBY makes a One-Touch™ Electric Warmer & Sterilizer that works out great for us!
It safely and evenly warms breast milk, formula, and baby food. We don't use bottles but my baby IS eating a LOT of baby food!
It comes with a small measuring cup that attaches to the back when not in use. You just add water, load the bin and touch the button to start. In a few minutes, it's done steaming and your baby food is usually melted, and sometimes warm (I have never had my food get hot but that's probably because I start from frozen).
To use the sterilizer feature, just put in your items and cap it with the plastic dome. SHOUT OUT to how awesome this is to sterilize pacifiers in minutes!! WOOT! :)
Now, I will say one thing I wish they'd change is the start button. The machine has Simple One-Touch™ Operation - and this is true. However, when I was filming this video the first time, I tried to turn it on with one hand while holding the video camera. I totally flipped the sterilizer over! You can't press down too hard, I discovered! Now, I don't consider this to be a flaw, but more of a learning curve type thing - but since most mommies ARE operating with just one hand while they hold a baby in the other - I thought I'd mention it! :) A push-in button might be better than a push-down?
Otherwise, the machine is awesome. Totally awesome! We use it several times a day and I love it. Now I'm not frustrated waiting for
paint to dry food to thaw. And baby is happy too!
