Advantages: Long lasting, convenient, brightly coloured
If, like me, you have decided to do homemade baby food for your baby, then you will definitely need some kind of storage pots. It is much more cost effective and much less hassle to cook up a big batch of food for baby and freeze it into smaller portions than it is to faff around cooking up small portions of food three times a day. I bought two packs of these Tommee Tippee storage pots when I first started weaning my baby. I chose Tommee Tippee because it is a well known and trusted brand. In a pack you get three pots with lids in either pink, green or blue (each pack contains three pots of the same colour). I paid £1 per pack when they were on a promotion but have since seen them in Sainsbury's and Tesco at around £2 per pack. When I first started my baby on puree I didn't fill the pot as he wouldn't have been able to eat it all but as his appetite grew I increased the amount I put into the pot. He is now ten months old and will have a pot of fruit for breakfast with his porridge and a savoury and sweet for both lunch and dinner. I had other brands of pots but these quickly became my favourite so I bought another four packs giving me a total of 18 pots, having spent £6.
I preferred these pots over other brands because they are brightly coloured. This makes them easy to spot in the freezer and also seems to make them harder to leave behind when out and about. The lids come off easily yet the pots don't leak. With some other brands it is really hard to get the lids off once they have been frozen but these ones are no trouble at all. They are a good size and I can see plenty of future use for them. Once my baby outgrows the one-pot portion I will do two pots of food for a meal, perhaps vegetables in one and protein in another and they could also be useful for holding snacks. The pots have a line near the top to show you how full you can fill them, if you go over the line there won't be any room for the liquid to expand in the freezer and you risk the lid popping off. It is really useful to have this as a guide. My pots all look as good as new despite regular freezing, microwaving and runs through the dishwasher. I haven't experienced any downside to these pots and they are good value for money. I would definitely recommend.
Summary: Useful, long lasting, brightly coloured baby food storage pots
