    i was finding that ice cubes werent big enough for james and was thinking of another way of freezing his purees when i came up with a brilliant idea !!

    i bought a couple of packs of little munch bunch yogurts me and hubby stuffed the yog and then those pots are the perfect size. I put them in a tuppaware and once they have frozen just pop out the puree's and put them all into a freezer bag to save on space. they come out easily and then i reuse the pots. :thumbup:

    Hope this can help someone else.

    I freeze some in those individual cube things and some in dishes with lids on....just baby dishes like this


    http://www.amazon.co.uk/First-Years...f=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=baby&qid=1251124987&sr=8-1


    actually these are the same as mine....means the meal is all ready in the dish. I either take it out of the freezer and pop in the fridge the night before to defrost or I just put it in the microwave on defrost before heating thoroughly:thumbup:

    I got mine a while ago when Jack was weening and I am sure they were about £6 from boots, they are really good! soft plastic so easy to pop them out when frozen & just the right portion size & they have a lid with them :)

    Great idea! I'll have to start setting those aside for when she needs bigger portions!

    If you buy Babylicious meals at the supermarket (frozen section) you can keep the popout trays and re-use them as well...
