I used to spend a day doing a whole heap of food for the kids and freezing it in portions. That way I could just take a portion out of the freezer and defrost it as needed.

When my ds was starting foods, I wanted to make my own and found this really great site wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com that goes over what foods to introduce to your baby at each age (look at the "solid foods" tab to find the age breakdown). I loved, loved, loved that site!

For a 7 month old, it suggests rice, barley or oat cereal, avocado, apricots, apples, bananas, mangos, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums, prunes, pumpkin, sweet potato, acorn/butternut squash, carrots, green beans, peas, yellow squash/zucchini, parsnips, chicken, turkey, tofu, and plain whole milk yogurt.

Introduce just one new food every 2-3 days so that if he's allergic to something, you'll know exactly what it is and so that his body can get use to the new food item before adding another. And, of course, remember that at this age most of his nutrients should still be coming from breast milk and/or formula.

Like other people, I would steam and puree relatively large batches of "baby food" to save time later. I found that pouring the puree into regular ice cube trays worked best. Two puree cubes was just about right for my ds at meal time.

Good luck and have fun with this exciting new time of solid foods. :)

I would not be giving him juice at all, he doesn't need it and all you are doing is encouraging a sweet tooth. All he needs is breastmilk to drink.

My son is mostly breastfeed, however he just don't like any store bought foods.. I have tried them all fruits, veggies and the ones with pasta in them. He is ok with the ones with pasta sometimes but he just loves the veggies I cook and the meats I blend up for him. he has no problems with his bowel movements. and he really don't eat that much. he is already drinking juice out of a sippy cup and small drinks out of a cup like mommie and daddy use.
