Gerber baby food

Does anyone who uses Gerber baby food have any problems with it being runny at times? I have had many containers & jars that I have opened recently that I might as well put a straw in & let my son suck it out because it is so runny. These are stage 2 foods. I thought it may have been the DHA types, but I'm finding it with any type. They are not outdated either. It's frustrating because when I'm out, I don't have cereal with me to add bulk to it. Is this just something I have to deal with?

Usually what i do is I add a little rice cereal to it to thicken it up. It helps my daughter keep it in her mouth since she is ready for big girl food. I also switched to beechnut, its cheaper and they have more flavors..

I have found that some Gerber foods are runny as well. I believe it mostly seems to be the veggies. Do you stir it up? That may help thicken it up some. I have always preferred Beech Nut. They just seem to make Beech Nut foods thicker...and plus that's just what I've always bought for my son.

thats' why i wont use gerber. i hate it. i love beech nut and my oldest son seemed to prefer beech nut over gerber. once my 4 month old is on the pureed foods that's all i will use.

Yes I had that problem. My daughter is now on stage 3 and still it is kinda runny. Try another brand. I used the disney brand alot and with a plus it is cheaper. You could find it at walmart. Hope this helps. :)

Try beach nut. I also think it is a lot thicker. I had problems with gerber also.

Yeah, even with the stage 3 it was somewhat runny... have you tried another brand of baby food, my daughter really like beech nut and it seemed to be a lil thicker
