Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites

We are keeping our dishes in the freezer, oh yes we are.

I'm still experimenting with this, but over the last few days I've been flinging Babybear's bowl into the freezer for about five or so minutes before I'm due to serve up our dinner. The idea is that it gets cold, so that when the hot food hits it everything cools down nicely so that we can all achieve Baby Led Weaning nirvana and EAT AT THE SAME TIME.
As it happens we use melamine dishes, a rather attractive Babar set that my mother brought back from France and an utterly scuzzy cheapoid set of 'Chinese' food bowls that I am slightly ashamed to own. Anyway it has worked so far, but I don't know about doing it with ceramic or plastic bowls. Feel free to conduct your own crockery tests and report back.

Post Script. My laziness knows no bounds, clearly… I've started leaving the dishes in the freezer all the time as I kept forgetting to put them in. It works brilliantly with the melamine ones (she says modestly).

    that is ingenious, and I will be using it from now on.
    Up until now I have been putting a bowl of hot food outside on the window ledge, which works well on a cold day. However when you live in a first floor flat, you do risk your neighbours' wrath, should the bowl be blown off.

    BAT, can i be honest with you? I positively twitter with delight every time I pull a baby dish out of the freezer. It works so well, I am clearly some kind of god-like genius figure.

    What genius!! Although, as our freezer is in the garage, we just use the fridge! Excellent idea Aitch – keep 'em coming :-)

    OK, so it's not as clever as keeping dishes in the freezer (top tip!) but I'm quite pleased with myself, it's not often the brain functions these days!
    My electric steamer is broken and I've been using one of those expanding thingies you put in the saucepan. Effectively, but limited in size and quite slow. We've also got a microwave steriliser, and I barely use the thing these days.
    Solution? Use your steriliser to steam your veg in the microwave! Works a treat, and takes much larger quantities of vegetables <wanders off, buffing shiny brain>

    That is genius. I was about to buy a steamer. But now: *in Mark-and-Lard voice* NO NEED!
