    I think mine wasn't written yet since she came early I feel just that way too. I'm sure one day I'll look back and not remember and go oh it wasn't so bad what were you worried about.

    This is what I'm planning on doing too, but I think only the veggies as I still can't feed her things I don't like, such as avocado, and fruit and meat mixed isn't working for me.

    I guess that makes it easy, I can just get a whole plain rotisserie chicken, there is no added fat or anything, take the skin off, take it off the bones, put it in the food processor and then freeze serving sizes, then mix it with carrots, sweet potatoes and other veggies. Soon after she will be eating bigger pieces of food so I dont have to puree it. Thanks girls, I wasnt sure if we can freeze the meat but I guess its just like freezing ready made meals.

    I mix avocados with fruit like apples and pears, actually Emy had pears with avocado this morning, she avocado on its own the first time I gave it to her but with fruit she eats it so fast.

    Any tips on the yogurt? Or am I asking too many silly questions? After a year of my silly questions you should really be used to them by now

    Erika - there are no silly questions and you've asked many that I've wondered about too.

    I read meat only lasts 1-2 months in the freezer vs. fruit and veggies 6-8 months.

    No idea on the yogurt as we are waiting with dairy products since J is just now starting to be less sensitive when I eat it.

    I am just gonna have DH cook some chicken plain next time we make a meal with it (we are having chicken curry), Nat eats bread and small bits of potato with her hands so I don't think chicken will be an issue.

    Erika, I am always so glad when you ask questions, b/c you ask many good questions I haven't even thought about yet - but I know down the road I would have asked anyway.

    I've been asking about probiotic yogurt on the homemade baby food board. Didn't ask about qty, thought I'd just start with a tbsp and go from there. They suggested mixing it with fruit puree b/c it's got a pretty strong (ie sour) flavour that the baby may not like. I want to start giving her yogurt soon, maybe after the long weekend.

    I was thinking of starting Evie on chicken broth mixed with veggie before giving her chicken. Won't give chicken to her until at least a week after the long weekend (she'll get yogurt first). I gotta make that chicken broth tho.

    I don't find your questions silly. The yogurt I got comes in a 4 oz. container. Kaysen ate about half of it, the first time. I give him that and something else usually. He doesn't seem too sure about the yogurt. Then again his appetite has been a little off since he's been ill.

    I am finding a lot of yogurt has honey in it, we are told to not feed babies honey until they are a year old due to a bacteria it carries, are most of you using a plain yogurt instead of a flavoured one? Can you get yogurt without honey or refined sugar?

    Thought so, thanks!

    Erica you have asked many great questions, I have asked many of those myself, I have two books so I can get the answers in those but I also like hearing from BTDT moms.
