Sugarbaby Saturday and a Giveaway

This is the aftermath of Sugarbaby's first round with a bowl full of sketti.


She flat out refuses baby food or anything that looks pureed in the least bit, which is kind of disappointing, considering all the plans I had. I got a brand new food processor and a baby cook book. I steamed fruits and veggies, pureed them, separated them into individual servings and stored them. I was only going to feed her things I prepared. Lot of good that did me.


Instead, Sugarbaby dines on bananas, Cheerios, pancakes, stroganoff, spaghetti, chicken noodle soup, and basically whatever we are having that she can gum down. So in honor of Sugarbaby's love of all foods whole I'm giving away my never used copy of Top 100 Baby Purees by Annabel Karmel. This chick is like the queen of child nutrition in England. It has lots of basic purees and some that sound good enough to be on the menu at a fine dining establishment. That is, if there were fine dining establishments for 6 month olds.


Just leave me a comment before midnight on January 31st and I will randomly pick a winner to be announced the next morning after I've had my coffee.

For extra comments, follow or subscribe and leave me a seperate comment saying you did. Or Tweet this giveaway and leave me a comment with your handle letting me know you did.

Will only ship to US residents with a valid email address.

This giveaway is part of the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival, go on over and see all the other contests you can enter.

  41. Ha. My baby was the same way. We have now transferred over to finger food, and yes it gets messy when spaghetti is a finger food but the fork is just an accessory apparently. I wold give this to my friend Jane who just got her bundle of joy, and surprise, its a boy. And he was only a few days late :-) rebecca342 at gmail dot com
