So you've decided to make homemade baby food. Here's a few quick tips to make storing it a lot easier. After you pureed it up, you can place it into these containers. If you are refrigerating the food for six- to ninth-month-old, this would be about two servings. For a 9 to 12-month old it would be about one serving. If you're gonna refrigerate the food, you could put it in like this and then let it rest, stay in the refrigerator for about three days. You don't wanna keep baby food, homemade for more than three days. Put it on like this. This is really important, label your food. Just so that you know, whether it's in a refrigerator or in a freezer, how long it's been in there. I like to use painter's tape because it comes right off and you can just use an indelible marker to write exactly what the food is. If you're deciding to freeze, make sure that you don't fill the container more than 3/4 the way up because the food will expand. After you have frozen the food, you wanna make sure to put it back in the refrigerator when you defrost it. It will take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours. Try not to microwave the food because you don't wanna get hot spots in the food so when you feed your baby you don't wanna burn your baby's mouth. -That's it.
