Millions of Peaches

Do you guys remember that "Peaches" song by the Presidents of the United States? My brother was obsessed with that song back in the day!  So by default, I hated it, and he would always sing it to annoy me :).

Yesterday's activity reminded me of that song: it was Harry's first time trying peaches!

Real men use pink mesh feeders
 According to Wholesome Baby Food you can puree peaches but I just added a few peeled slices to a mesh feeder. As with most everything he's tried, they were a big hit!


He ate all of it within minutes. It's so fun to see Harry liking real food more and more. He gets so excited when he sees the mesh feeders or baby spoons. The past few days we've reintroduced a second feeding during the morning. Thankfully they're going better than when we first started. The first feeding of the day is now anywhere between 9am and 11am, and it's always yogurt. He'll eat at least 3/4 of the container. Then in the late afternoon we'll do 4-5 ounces of fruit and veggie purees. I always mix up what he eats, like yesterday he had an ounce each of butternut squash, yellow squash, sweet potatoes and applesauce.

Even with all the food he's eating we haven't dropped a bottle, which is good since the formula is supposed to be his main source of nutrition until his first birthday. I wouldn't mind if he dropped a bottle, but that's purely for selfish reasons.

One more thing on baby food... yesterday we picked up four large organic pears for $6.27. I cooked and pureed the fruits in my Beaba Babycook and I was able to make 19 ounces of puree, which equals out to 33¢ an ounce. Compare that to the Plum Organics pears at 42¢ an ounce or the Gerber organic pears that retail for just 28¢ an ounce, but have weird ingredients like tuna oil and gelatin. 


And just for fun here's a picture I took the other day.


He's getting so tall!
