The Béaba babycook makes cooking your own baby food easy as pushing a button. Literally. All you have to do is add the raw ingredients (yes, even meats) and push the start button. Then, in a few short minutes, your baby food is done. Simply turn the knob to puree and you are ready to go! This machine has made my busy life so much simpler. I throw the ingredients into the baby cook before I start cooking dinner for the rest of the family and everyone is ready to eat together. It's like magic! And the best part is that Béaba makes a few different models depending your needs:
The "babycook" has one large 4.7 cup bowl, the "babycook plus" has two large 4.7 cup bowls, the "original babycook" has a 3.7 cup bowl, and the "original babycook original plus" has a 3.7 cup bowl and a bottle warmer/sterilizer.
All models come in lots of fun colors, the water reservoir is made of stainless steel, and all parts are BPA, Lead and Phthalate free. What's not to love!? You can buy them on the Béaba website and make sure to use code "PALEOSFS" at checkout for 20% off your order!
This study silicone tray is perfect for freezing your extra pureed baby food and is free of any harmful chemicals. With the flexible silicone, it is very easy to pop the frozen food cubes out of the tray to reheat or take with you one go.

I love the fact that this entire spoon is silicone, because my son loves to use his as a teether and a drumstick for his imaginary highchair table drum... which would be much louder if the spoons were metal. In fact, my son actually routinely chooses to play with these spoons over his other toys. And let's be honest, if they occupy your baby, you don't ask questions... Just roll with it.

These clip containers are great for snacks or baby food on the go! I used to use small glass containers and would end up digging in my diaper bag trying to find them. The fact that these containers clip together is so convenient because it makes them so much easier to find in your bag which means less stress. And anything that makes parenting easier in my book gets a thumbs up from me! They are not only BPA, lead & phthalate free, but freezer, dishwasher, and microwave safe as well.

If you want to stick with glass for baby food containers, these Wean Green containers are pricey, but worth it. I have definitely tested these containers by throwing them around in my diaper bag and the snapping seal lids have never leaked. You can find them on the Wean Green website.
Traditional bibs are just so impractical. I know my kid is not the only one who ends up with half of his food in his lap. Luckily, this OXO roll up bib solves that problem by catching everything your kid drops, which means less mess and less food waste. Win, win. Check them out on the OXO website.
This is my absolutely favorite sippy cup hands down because the only materials that the water touches are glass and silicone. The glass interior is protected by a plastic exterior, so you don't have to worry about the cup breaking if your child drops it (or, you know, throws it across the living room). Plus, each cup comes with both a traditional sippy cup and a straw top so your child can use them as they grow. Check them out on the iPlay website.
Green Sprouts makes silicone bowls, cups, and placemats that are safe, non-toxic, and wonderful to help your children as they learn to eat like big kids. Check them out on the iPlay website.
I absolutely love these Squeasy Gear reusable food pouches because they allow you to have the convenience of the baby food packets on the go while still giving your child healthy, homemade baby food - and without the toxic plastic chemicals! These pouches are really easy to fill, really easy to clean, and come in a variety of colors and sizes. Plus, you don't have to worry about your child spilling the contents everywhere, because of the awesome leak-preventing top design and cap. What's not to love!?
As your kids get a little bit bigger and you start packing more snacks, I definitely recommend the PlanetBox stainless steel lunch boxes. They are amazing quality and will last you a very long time. Plus, they are free of any toxic chemicals and are lighter to carry around than glass. If you need a leak proof stainless steel set for meals like soups or smoothie bowls, I highly recommend the Blue Water Bento line from ECO Lunch Boxes. Their tight-fitting, non-toxic food grade silicone lids offer the convenience of plastic lids without the unhealthy chemicals!
