the beaba babycook

All mamas will want the best for their babies, and this one is most definately included. With Adrianna, I was a first time mum and I didn't know a lot of things so Google was my best friend but with what I've learned, I did not have much freedom to practise because I was living temporarily with the inlaws and old-school was still pretty dominant around their house when it comes to raising a kid.

This time around, things will be a little different. I'm going to preservere in breastfeeding my son and when he's ready for solid food, it'll be home-made baby food. If I have my way, which I suspect I most definately will - I'll be splurging on a Beaba Babycook in "Gipsy" by January 2013 and stocking up on other cute storage supplies for baby food processing.

After much research, it was either the Beaba Babycook retailing at RM590 plus or the Philips Avent Steamer & Blender about RM390 less as they both do the same thing. But I've decided to go with the Beaba Babycook ... for now. You're probably rolling your eyeballs at me right about now, but in all honesty ... if this mama is going to be the one paying for it and then cook, wash and feed the baby; then this mama is going to buy something she loves using, cook, wash and feed with. But who knows, I might jolly well end up with the Philips Avent Steamer & Blender when the time comes - I blame this entirely on my fickle brain wrecked with lunatic infused pregnancy hormones. What a mouthful!

So ... what's the hype about the Beaba Babycook? Here's the lowdown:
A one-of-a-kind, patented compact countertop appliance that functions as a steamer, blender, warmer and defroster to prepare fresh, healthy meals for baby. Quickly steam cook vegetables, fruits and meats in 15 minutes or less, while preserving their vitamins and flavors.
By saving the condensed water after steaming, you're able to add valuable nutrients back into baby's food. Puree and blend food to the desired consistency making it super smooth, chunky or anywhere in between for baby. Parents can also use the Babycook to quickly reheat or defrost precooked foods. Clean up is quick and easy with a top-rack dishwasher safe bowl and basket.
Bowl is made from unbreakable, Bisphenol-A free copolyester and the cooking basket from transparent polypropylene (PP).
Comes with a 2½ - cup capacity bowl, cooking basket, spatula and recipe booklet. Bowl and basket are top-rack dishwasher safe.
I'll also be adding these to my collection when the time comes but till then, a mama can dream can't she?
