Making your own baby food with the Babycook (and a Babycook giveaway!)

BEABA Babycook

The Babycook steams your fruit, vegetables and meats while preserving vitamins and flavor and all in less than 15 minutes!

Be sure to read to the end of my review to learn how you can enter to win your very own Babycook!

My baby is now 6 months old and I figured time to start solid foods! The other day I brought home my new BAEBA Babycook. I love this small but mighty machine.

I washed the basket, read the simple instructions and I was ready. My first baby dish was going to be delicious fresh Texas yellow squash. I chopped up the squash, added water to the heating reservoir and turned the dial to cook and walked away. The Babycook steams your fruit, vegetables and meats while preserving vitamins and flavor and all in less than 15 minutes! After my squash was perfectly cooked I emptied the contents of the cooking basket into the mixing bowl. The Babycook purees or blends the food and you control the consistency of the final product, chunky to completely smooth. I put the squash in a bowl and served it to my daughter. She clearly was not as excited about the Babycook as I was!

The  next morning my enthusiasm had not faltered. I was ready to try again. This time I just threw in a ripe pear. I did peel the pear first, wasn’t sure what the consistency would be after I blended it with the skin on. I puréed it until it was nice and smooth and breakfast was served.

Multiportion

Babycook Multiportions - store and freeze your baby food a

After creating delicious babyfood I was wondering what to do with all of the leftovers. Thankfully I brought home two Multiportions to freeze the leftover babyfood in. Multiportions are designed for freezing and storing a la carte foods for baby. The Multiportions are comprised of seven individual portions of ¼ cup (60 ml) each. Multiportions are made from silicone. These lightweight storage containers are freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe.

Additionally, Multiportions are Bisphenol-A free. This product is the perfect compliment for the Babycook allowing you to make the freshest and best food for baby. Making baby food in batches and freezing it makes preparing your own baby food as convenient as buying prepared foods, with the added benefit of using only the best ingredients.  Parents can use the Babycook to quickly reheat or defrost precooked foods.

Ok, so maybe you are wondering why should I invest in a Babycook? The Babycook is compact and lightweight – meaning it takes up very little counter space and if you want to store it, not a problem. The mixing bowl and cooking basket are top-rack dishwasher safe. When you are making food you only dirty one pot! Less clean up for you. It comes with a great recipe book, that was written by a famous French nutritionist Agnes Mignonac. Recipes are arranged into age groups to offer balanced meals that are suitable for your baby’s development.

BABYCOOK:

* Prepares fresh, healthful meals for baby.

* Includes 2 1/2-cup plastic bowl, cooking basket and spatula, with recipe booklet.

* 350W, 11″ x 5 1/2″ x 8″ high.

* The machine has no traceable amounts of BPA.

I am determined to feed my child fresh and healthy options while introducing menus such as salmon with pasta and asparagus! After all, my husband is a chef and I consider myself a foodie – shouldn’t we get our baby off on the right foot? I love my Babycook and think you will too. The Babycook qualifies for FREE shipping when you purchase from Bloom Maternity.

    Well, I already have and LOVE my Babycook, but I’d certainly love to win one to give to many of the new mamas I know! (If that’s ok…)

    I puree veggies and “hide” them in my kids’ food so this would be PERFECT for that!!!

    I have been eyeing the Babycook for months, but everywhere I go to get one is SOLD OUT! My husband and I want this product because we want to feed our baby all organic and control what is going into his food. I can’t wait to start making his food!

    I have a 7 month old and have been wanting to start making food for him – the jarred stuff is soooo expensive and bland. However, it is a bit overwhelming to get started – I’ve heard great things about the Babycook and would love to have one to kick start this ambitious dream of mine!

    I’d love to have a babycook to help simplify the process! We make our own now, but I feel like I am constantly washing dishes because we have the steamer and all of it’s parts to wash, and the food processor and all of it’s parts to wash….sometimes it gets to be a lot in our tiny kitchen!

    Oh my goodness! I have seen this in William Sonoma and thought it looked great. I am planning on making my own baby food to save money and use local produce when possible. This would be a huge help!! Thank you for your review of the product too – I am glad to hear it works well.

    I have never heard of the babycook until now! Sounds like an amazing invention. I would love to have one of these. Making homemade baby food seems like a lot of work when you can just go buy it at the store but this makes it soo easy!

    Lisa Cain said,

    I think if you have the money – this is a great tool. But, for the rest of us a pan and a fork for mashing will do. My favorite website for homemade baby food recipes is:

    http://www.babyfood101.com

    The site suggests that you just cook for yourself and feed some to baby. There is a 6 month course of suggestions you can sign up for to guide you in introducing a variety of foods for your baby.

    I hope this is helpful.

    I don’t need one for me, but my Sister is expecting her first baby in July and this would be perfect for her!

    This is awesome! My baby is 4 months old and I’m just starting to think about solids. I hate spending the money on commercial baby food and would LOVE to make my own!
    I even just posted on my blog about rice cereal that I made. Great timing!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I responded already, but I want to change my response as to why I would love a Babycook.

    If I had a Babycook, I would give it to my friend, Daniela. She is an mother with preemie twins (3 months early), one with a heart murmur and one with a GI problem that may require surgery, and a 3 year old with a seizure disorder. She lost her job in January and her husband lost his job in April. They are rapidly burning through savings and she told me that she is trying to save money by making her own baby food. She has a blender but it is old and doesn’t work very well. She can’t afford to buy the food she wants to give her children, so she is trying to make it. I would give her a Babycook to help her, even the slightest bit.

    I thought I would make all of my daughters baby food until I started doing it. I think the cleanup was what turned me off. I think if I would have had the Baby Cook then it would have been sooooo much easier. If I win I will use it for my next baby. Thanks for offering this free BabyCook!!!

    I made baby food for my son, but I didn’t have a system. I just pureed whatever I had on hand and fed him. With the new baby (born a week ago!!) I’d like to be more organized, and have food prepared in advance. I’ve heard fabulous things about the Babycook on twitter, and would LOVE to check it out!

    I would love to win the Beaba Babycook for my niece. (If that is allowed). She has a newborn. She and her husband are medical missionaries in the Amazon River Basin, in Brazil. They want to feed their baby only natural, organic foods, and the Babycook would be perfect for them! I had already sent her information about this product, complete with the instructional video. They were excited about it, but, of course, can’t afford it with no income. If I could win it for them, they would be thrilled!
    Sincerest thanks for offering this incredible product!

    I’ve always made my own baby food; It’s so much better to know exactly what is in the food we feed our babies. Even when the ingredients say peas and water, they still have to add the preservatives so it keeps. I’d love to win this for our next or to give out to one of my Baby Signing Parents!

    Hey Allison! I just blogged about the Beaba Babycook & all of the food I have been growing in my garden to cook in it! I am 8 months preggo & even though I have a little while before I can use it, I am so excited to be feeding my little one as natural & healthy food as possible! Here is the link! http://styleberryhome.com/

    I made babyfood for my son (now 2) and plan on doing it for my new daughter (4 months) once she starts eating solids. It would be so much easier to use the Beaba Babycook than to steam and process using 2 or more other kitchen tools!!!

    I would love to win a Beaba Babycook! I’ve had my eye on this gadget for a while. It seems like such a handy tool, being able to cook and puree in the same device.

    I have 1 year old twins and never seem to have time to prepare nutritious meals. If I could just stick some meat or veggies in the beaba babycook it will steam them and turn off by itself and then it will even puree it. Kinda effortless healthy baby food.

    I’ve been looking longingly at W-S at this for months. I don’t have babies (yet), but I can’t imagine not making my own baby food at least some of the time. 🙂
