Homemade Baby Food is a Breeze
I am sure most moms (including me) can list a thousand and one excuses as to why they do not make their own baby food but if any of them are how hard it is or how much time it takes then you don’t have an excuse anymore! Making your own baby food is extremely easy! Even if you have to use the blender or food processor you already own and need to steam your fruits and veggies in an old-fashion pot - the process is still surprisingly easy. However, if you invest in a Baby Brezza (or one of the other baby food processors - Baby Posh Garage usually has them available) your steps are cut in half. Just cut up the the fruits or vegetables you want to make, throw it in the Brezza’s container and the Baby Brezza steams and blends it for you! It’s actually pretty amazing and made me feel completely obsolete but until they come up with a machine that feeds and changes my baby too I guess I’m not out of a job!
You can mix whatever ingredients you want. Pre-packaged baby foods come in wacky combinations (I even came across a bizarre mix of green beans, raisins and pears!) and our children gobble it up like it’s their first piece of cake so this is the time to be creative! However, if your looking for a few recipes to get you started I have included a couple of known winners below!
Bonus tip: If you have extra, just scoop it into ice cube trays, pop the tray into the freezer and as soon as the cubes are frozen (usually about an hour or two) pile them into a ziploc bag or container and just put it back in the freezer. When you are ready to use a cube or two just leave it out for an hour or microwave for 15-30 seconds (depending on the strength of your microwave).
** ALWAYS check with your pediatrician before starting new foods **
Carrot and Pear Puree (Great for babies just starting solids!)
1. Peel and dice 3 medium carrots
2. Peel and dice 1 small pear
3. Steam until tender and blend until desired consistency (if using a Baby Brezza set for 15 minutes and walk away!)
** You can always stir in some water, breast milk or formula to make a thinner puree!
Sweet Potato, Parsnip, Apple and Cinnamon Puree
1/2 parsnip, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 small apple (or half a large apple), peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 teaspoon cinnamon (can always add a little more to taste!)
Steam all ingredients (minus the cinnamon) until they are tender
Blend all ingredients (add the cinnamon) until smooth
(if using a Baby Brezza combine steps 1 & 2 and put all in the container together and set for 20 minutes and walk away!)
Serve to your hungry baby :)

Certified Swimming, Infant/Child CPR/First Aid, Lifeguard Instructor and Author, Julie Gross, has created a Learn to Swim in Just 5 Days Guaranteed! program through her company, Swim with Mr. Blue.
Ms. Julie has written a children’s book entitled Swim with Mr. Blue, and from this book was created colorful puppet characters which are used in a Water Safety Puppet Show that depicts the story of the book.
Mr. Blue and his Swimming Crew were having fun one day and Mr. Blue forgot how to swim.
The Water Safety Puppet shows will entrance the children with the mesmerizing songs and the playful maneuvers of the puppet characters as Mr. Blue’s swimming crew teach him the swim techniques that he needs to remember how to swim and feel safe and secure in the water!
We were honored to have Ms. Julie, Mr. Blue and his Swimming Crew yesterday here at Baby Posh, and look forward to seeing lots of little ones safely enjoying the waters this summer.

The Mayo Clinic has an interesting article on their website about it - just click here. And we at Baby Posh carry an assortment of tools such as books, DVDs and potty trainers to help your child become more independent. So do yourself a favor and encourage your child to use the potty whenever the time is right. As a parent myself, I will cherish the day when I won't need to buy any more diapers !

At this time, The PJ Library is available in more than 100 communities across the United States. Each community is sponsored by a local Jewish organization and local donors who share a passion for vibrant Jewish life. You can see if PJ Library is available in your community by clicking here.
We at Baby Posh are proud to have some PJ Library books on our shelves, as a well as countless of other books to stimulate your children's intellect and creativity.
We have pulled all recalled units off our shelves, and still encourage the use of a proper carrier. Our favorite, the "Baby K'tan Baby Carrier" - which we still offer here at BPG - has issued the following statement that we wanted to share with you:
"The Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC") has issued a warning advising parents and caregivers to be cautious when using infant slings for babies younger than four (4) months old. (See CPSC Warning).
Since its inception, "safety first" has been the focal point of Baby K'tan. Baby K'tan, LLC commends the CPSC safety warning as an important milestone in helping parents and caregivers continue the ancient practice of baby wearing in a proper and safe manner.
The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier has never been subject to a CPSC recall, and our company has always maintained strict safety standards. We provide written instructions and warnings with every Baby Carrier, as well as video instructions and written instructions on our website, so that our customers are well educated on the proper and safe use of the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier. See Safety Warnings (please notice warning #7 which clearly addresses points in the CPSC warning). And, of course, our customer service personnel are available to answer individual questions.
The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier's unique double loop design was specifically designed so that infants can be held in a more upright position, as compared to traditional slings. This is meant to mimic the position in which a parent would hold a baby in their arms, with the baby's head at or close to the parent's chest. Parents and caregivers can also carry infants in the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier in a more upright Kangaroo position.
We, at Baby K'tan, have always stressed the importance of safety. Following our instructions and warnings when using the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier will help achieve a safe and secure environment for parent/caregiver and baby.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at 866.yes.ktan (866.937.5826) or via email at email@example.com for any questions or concerns you may have.
Baby K'tan has joined the ASTM committee to create guidelines for safe and proper infant positioning in baby carriers and slings".
Definitely ! And the result is Kids Ink - a high-end clothing line for infants, toddlers and children. They offer comfortable and fashionable apparel for hip parents who want unique and original clothing to dress their children in.
Kids Ink is inspired by pop art, whimsical fantasy, and the many different cultures we encounter in our lives. Its passion for colors and eclectic aesthetics matches the imaginative personality and expressive spirit that children have.

Baby Posh is proud to be offering a few select items like this amazing hoodie (and no, the baby is not for sale, although the tattoo can be arranged). So call us or - even better - come and visit us so you can turn your child into a future fashionista.
