Homemade Baby Cereal

So I've been making my own baby food since Kane was a baby, when I finally discovered I could do such a thing.

I use baby cereal to thicken up baby food as my kids get older and prefer thicker food. I ran low on baby cereal the other day and was dreading having to make a special trip to the store for more. Finally it dawned on me that I could probably make my own.

I was right and its super simple!
I used Aldi brand old fashioned oats. I had also just made homemade noodles, hence the messy counter.

I put the oats in the small Magic Bullet cup.

I used this blade.

Then I ran it for about 5-10 seconds. Btw, they now make a Baby Bullet.... I wonder where they got that idea from. :)

Until it was pretty fine.

Then I poured it into my homemade chicken noodle soup baby food.

I stirred it up and kept adding more until it was the consistency Ford likes.


Now I'm wondering why it took me so long to think of this!! Sigh.
