My son s Annaprashan( first rice eating ceremony) was in Guruvayoor after completing his 5th month as per the Hindu calendar. This was done more as a ritual and we waited for him to complete 6 months to actually start weaning process.
Then he slowly got progressing with trying out all foods, keeping the breastfeeding continued.
I always looked forward to visiting the baby stores just to check out all the cute little toys, clothes and off course check out the latest collection of baby food and accessories.
The once I spotted the Nestle Gerber baby pureed food on the stands and remembered my cousins in the US bringing a whole crate of these mini bottles for their babies during their visits to India. I was tempted to buy a few for my 7month old baby. I went with a couple of different flavours , the most sought after is the applesauce.
My baby seemed to love it as he gobbled it all up. I bought a couple more to keep handy during our outings . I did taste it once and found the flavour mild. It is not very sweet. Whenever there was time ,I made a few fruit and veg purees in the similar texture and bottled them to carry along while stepping out.
The Gerber baby pureed food is a good weaning food option and for all those working mothers who dont have enough time at hand. It is also an ideal packed food option. Just put in a couple of your baby s favorite flavoured Gerber food bottles in your baby bag and step out without having to worry about their next meal.
Gerber baby food has a range of pureed foods, in great flavours and textures(from smooth to chunky) .
It claims to be low on preservatives, but we all know well that home made food is the best and all such options are to make life simple and easier for us. So no harm trying as long as it is occasionaly.
Price : INR 135 for 170g leak proof bottle
