It can be a bit daunting

AdvantagesGood wholesome cooking without the worry of whats in it.

Disadvantagescan take a long time to prepare but its worth it

"Every new mum will know how daunting it is just thinking about feeding your baby nutritious meals that you have prepared yourself!

Puree's R us

AdvantagesCheap and easy to do!

DisadvantagesNone

"I found it easier to feed my daughter and my son before her from ice cube trays, these are a god send, I think I read it in a baby magazine first then someone else suggested it, maybe the health visitor, but if it makes life easier then its worth trying.
