    I don't know if it's ok to leave them in those containers as I'm not familiar with them. I freeze Clara's food in regular ice cube trays and then transfer them to freezer bags marked with the date the food was made and what the food item is (all the different orange foods look the same frozen lol).

    Hi.
    I use the same pots and you can keep the purees in the pots in the freezer, you don't have to transfer to the bags, it's your choice.
    I make all my own veg and fruit purees, place them into the pots and put them straight into the freezer after they've cooled.
    Every night i take 3 pots of puree out of the freezer for the next day and place into the fridge to defrost over night. You can then put the pots into the microwave to heat for 30 seconds and then leave to cool and give straight to your Lo from the pots.
    My Lo is 7 months now and i weaned at 6, he;s been fine. Hope this helps. xx
    P.s, don't forget to use sticky labels to label your pots!!!. x

    Forgot to say.... the pots are freezable and microwave friendly and safe to use. It stated this on the labels. xx

    I would pop them out into a tub/freezer bag once they are frozen as you can then use the tub again to make some more!

    Also...dont make too much. If LO is 6 months they shouldnt really be on purees too long - say just a few weeks max, however any leftover veg purees can be used as pasta sauces and any fruit purees can be added to cereals etc.:flower:
