Baby Brezza Review and Giveaway


Earlier this summer, I was lucky enough to be sent a Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker to review.  Since we did Baby Led Weaning with Penelope, I never got into making pureed baby food. Although, I did make one recipe, before I decided to let her try to eat pieces of whatever we were eating.



If I didn’t do Baby Led Weaning, I would have absolutely made her food.  When you make your baby’s food you can control ingredients.  You can make food with local, in season and organic vegetables. You can rest easy knowing that there is no BPA in the food from the plastic jars they come in at the store.  You can control price and save money by buying local vegetables that are in season, make a huge batch and freeze it (and we all know how I love to freeze food!).  And then you also get that high and that sense of pride, that comes when you create something with your own two hands.

Around the same time I was sent a copy of ICE POP JOY.  I highly recommend buying the ICE, POP, JOY book if you want to make healthy popsicles for your little one.  The author is an amazing woman, someone I really look up to and admire.  She has so many different and wonderful recipes to try and the photography is stunning.  I love having this book on my kitchen counter, because it is a JOY to look at!

But I thought the Baby Brezza would be perfect for making popsicles, since it has a blend only option. I was so inspired by the book, that I decided to come up with my own recipe, with local, organic blueberries and blackberries.  It tastes amazing, but I can’t share it with you yet, because it is going to be published in the upcoming Baby Food Cookbook that Baby Brezza is putting out next Fall!

Speaking of stunning photography, big thanks to Christy Baldwin Photography, for taking the pictures for this post.  She is pretty dang amazing!  I hope I can take pictures like her one day.

Penelope had such fun helping me make our popsicles.  And do you see how color coordinated we are?  I am such a dork, but I had to wear blue to match the popsicles!  That dress was actually the dress my maid of honor wore at my beach wedding, I liked it so much, I bought one for myself.

The Baby Brezza is an all in one.  So you can steam your veggies and then puree it, and only wash one item!

My little helper.

She really liked pressing the buttons.  I will have to be honest, figuring out how to use the Baby Brezza the first time I attempted to use it, it was not totally self explanatory.  I like to be able to whip things out the box and figure it out, without wasting time reading silly things like directions.  So take my advice, just take a moment to read the directions first!!

And ta da!  Delish home made popsicles.  We used these popsicle molds from Ecological Babies.  I love them!

My beautiful girl loved her popsicles!  This is one of my most favorite pictures of Penelope.  Those eyes kill me!

If you don’t have fancy popsicle molds, you can use an ice cube tray and tooth picks.

The Baby Brezza has a pourable spout, so pouring into containers was, wait for it, a breeze!

Do you make your baby’s food?  Would you like to have your very own Mama and Baby Love Facebook Fan AND Baby Brezza to participate.

    I would LOVE to win this because we are adopting and I feel that "mama" guilt of not being there those first few months to give her the absolute best…

    this could really help me do just that!

    Thanks,

  129. I’m coming into this sort of late, but just had to put in my two cents. It’s nice to see you’ve updated your blog, and I can’t wait for more freezer meals! We’ve tried most of them, and it sure is nice to just toss something into the Crock Pot from the freezer without day-of prep! You are absolutely right about making baby foods. I have many friends who exclusively buy baby purees, and to me, it’s such a waste. I’m absolutely not into organic this-or-that foods and baby raising methods, but the little time and effort it took to steam and puree the foods gave me peace of mind and, to be honest, a sense of pride in what I fed my little girl. Totally worth it. Now that she’s eating chunks of food, we use our baby food maker to just do the steaming–then we cut the food into bite-sized chunks, stuff them into ice cube trays, freeze them, and just heat them in little baggies in warm water when it’s time to eat (when we’re being really smart, we put them in the fridge to thaw beforehand). This is still necessary because our one-year-old has only two little teeth coming in–definitely not enough to chomp through crunchy fruits and veggies! Apples and carrots are the easiest ones to prepare and freeze, and she pounds them down her throat! It’s also nice to still be able to use our baby food maker. Such a money saver!

    • I agree, the moms who make their babies food, all tell me the feel that same feeling of pride. That is a great tip about freezing, pre-cooked, pre-chopped food as they get older.

  130. Do you give your daughter juice? I was just wondering if you did what kind? And if you don’t, why not? Juice is just so full if sugar I couldn’t see myself giving it to my baby when he is old enough. Thanks!

    • Sometimes I give her spinach-apple juice that I make myself. It is mostly spinach and just a touch of apple. The last time she did have a fever, I did give her watered down store bought organic juice, because I wanted her to stay hydrated and her blood sugar level up. But I do not give her juice to drink as a regular thing, because like you said, way too much sugar.

  1. [...] eater.  She wont eat everything that is put in front of her like she did when she was a baby (we did baby led weaning), but there are still plenty of healthy and nutritious things she will eat. [...]
