  5. I dont have a blender, what else to use???

I dont have a blender, what else to use??? Lock Rss

I dont have a blender of any sort, do not have enough money to buy one and do not know anyone who can lend me one. My DS is 5 months and just started cereal but can I just mash the pumpkin etc or do I need a blender??

I use a stick blender, but if you can't buy one, a fork can do the job. I have used a can still be a bit lumpy, so you'll need to really do a good job, but it does work & if your bub likes it that way, it's all good.

Good luck!

i used to use a sivwith dd1 and just push the food through it with a fork but now i just wait until my bubs is 6mths and just mash with a fork. if you start with really soft foods they soon learn how to 'chew' the lumps up.

i bought a blender just for baby food and didn't really use it.

If you dice your bub's fruit and veg very finely before cooking, you could probably get away with using a fork.

You might have a bit of trouble when introducing meat though. A stick blender would be the way to go and the lower priced ranged ones are fine. My one cost less than $20 and I'm using it for my second child with no problems.

I was in BIG W today and in the electrical section. They sell the stick blender I think the brand was Belle and it was only $10. It would do the job until bub was ready for mash and finger food.

There were more expensive ones there but it looked very similar to the others - just not chrome or anything
