Use Food Storage Bags:
This may sound really surprising if I say I used to store my baby’s meal into the sandwich bags and Ziplock bags. This is another cheap and very safe way to store foods for months. You can make a big meal for 3-4 months and store all the foods into a couple of sandwich bags. I prefer to store in both as it takes a little place in the freezer and also easy to take out whenever needed.
However, you can fill the one week serving into the ice cubes from the bags. It will offer you the best flexibility when you’re running out of time. And repeat filling from the Ziplock or sandwich bags when the ice cubes are finished. Make sure you’re getting the BPA free bags from the trusted super shop or online store. You can’t take the risk for your baby’s health in any way.

Every mom tends to have leftover breastmilk bags and they never thought to reuse them except throwing them. But I was very lucky when I get to know from an online blog that I can use them for freezing my baby’s food. It saved me from extra expenditure and provided me a great experience.

Have you ever thought about silicone trays to store baby foods in the freeze? This is a little bit costly but I will say it is really worthy and won’t break your bank account. One day my husband got me some silicone trays for storing our baby’s foods.
I loved those trays for a reusable feature and great infinity to the organization. It organizes food in a great way that you can take out the food and send that right away to the baby care. They are unbreakable until you force them into broken pieces. So, you can keep them for the next use when you will have your next baby.
Reusable Food Pouch:
Reusable is a term that is very popular for every parent. I also love everything which is reusable from diapers to baby food containers. In recent days, reusable baby food pouches have been very popular among conscious parents. But I didn’t like one thing about reusable food pouches. They only contain one meal serving into the per pouch. So, you have to get a lot of pouches if you’re only storing in these pouches.
