My little man has been having to eat bites of fruit with his meds since he was about a week old. As he is getting bigger, he is loving fruits, and veggies. So little by little we have been giving him a small amount of baby food. He loves it. He gets all excited and smiles, and giggles. He does get mad if you don't get that spoon to his mouth fast enough. So since we are getting into foods, I am trying to find what baby foods I like best.
NurturMe is this wonderful company that makes baby food that is in a powdered form, so it takes up much less space than jars of baby food. Great to throw in your diaper bag for when you are out at Grandmas or Aunts and Uncles houses. You can mix it with water, breastmilk or formula, until it reaches your desired thick (or thin)ness. And there you have it, fresh baby food for your little one.
I first tried to put this in a bottle with some formula for my little man, but forgot to put on the right nipple before leaving, so that time was a fail. But tonight, I ran out of baby food to feed him other then the fruits I need to give him with his medications and decided to mix one of these up.
He did get a bit fussy while waiting for me to get this to the right thin texture for my liking. But once I got back to him with this fresh mix of Sweet Potatoes, Bananas and Oatmeal, he was grabbing my hand to get that spoon in his mouth. It was the most adorable thing ever! He finished the whole package with no problem, and was very happy the whole time doing it.
I was very impressed with how well this mixed up with breastmilk. And how well he took it in. Of course, if you are like me you want to know what your baby is really eating. So I gave it the taste test. It was delicious. I have fed him bananas before, and when I tasted them out of the jar the bananas tasted very tart. And not much like bananas. But when I tasted this product it was great. I know my little one was very happy to have it as well.
The great things about NurturMe are:
- It is Certified Organic
- Gluten-Free (which is a must for some kiddos)
- Non-GMO verified
- There are no added sugar, salts, or preservatives.
- And it is made right here in the USA
I will definitely be getting more of these little packets to have in my baby's diaper bag for whenever I need them. And some for home too!
