Top Baby Food Freezer Storage Containers

If you just want to cut straight to the chase – these are our absolute favorite storage containers for baby food.

Baby Food Trays

WEESPROUT Silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray – great 10-sectioned baby food tray that holds 1. 5oz each, but has a 1 oz fill line for smaller portions. Is made out of premium food-grade silicone and has a plastic lid for easy stacking. These trays or worth their price and we would recommend getting a couple of their fun color trays so you can easily stock up on your homemade baby food.

4 Pack of Silicone Ice Cube Molds Tray with Lid – This is a newer purchase for us and so far the quality has been great and you can’t beat the price for 4 trays! The trays are made out of food-grade silicone and BPA-free plastic and each cube gives you 1oz of baby food.

Glass Baby Food Storage

WEESPROUT Glass Baby Food Storage Containers – We absolutely love these jars! You get 12 colorful glass jars that hold 4oz each. Great for storing baby food purees as well as yogurts, overnight oats, chia seed pudding for toddlers and kids. While the price is a little high, you will get many years worth out of these jars. Well worth the investment in our opinion.

Babymoov Glass Food Storage Containers – I love that this set comes with two different sizes of containers – 4oz and 8oz. This is great if you have a baby that is a bigger eater and needs more than an ounce or two of purees at each meal.

Plastic Baby Food Containers

WEESPROUT Leakproof Baby Food Storage – just as amazing as their glass jars, just with a smaller price tag! This set comes with 12 colorful 4oz jars made out of BPA free high-quality polypropylene plastic. I also love that this plastic version is easier (and lighter) to toss into your diaper bag for a quick baby meal on the run.

OXO Tot Baby Blocks Freezer Storage Containers – a great smaller set that contains 4 – 4oz PVC, BPA, and phthalate-free jars and a storage tray. Great space-saver system that helps keep your jars of baby purees organized and tidy. Plus, you can easily stack more trays on top of each other if you need a bigger freezer stash.

Other Helpful Tools
  • Stasher Bags – these silicone reusable bags can hold your frozen cubes of baby food purees.
  • ZipLock Bags – another option for storing your frozen purees in.

How to Freeze Baby Food

When making homemade baby food purees, your freezer is about to become your best friend, allowing you to keep several weeks’ worth of baby purees at the ready.

For more information on how to make your own baby food, check out my Ultimate Guide on Making Your Own Baby Food!

  • After making your puree, let it cool until just warm.
  • Spoon the puree into your choice of baby food storage container.
  • Cover your container with a lid or plastic wrap, and place in the freezer.
  • Let the puree freeze completely before you crack the purees out of the tray and place the cubes into a plastic freezer zip-lock or stasher bag. If using jars, the frozen purees would stay in the jars.
  • Label each bag or jar with the name of the puree and the date you made it.

How to Thaw Baby Food

Thawing may seem like a no-brainer, but it never hurts to know your options. There are three different ways to thaw purees:


Take the frozen puree cubes that you want to serve out of your freezer, place them in a glass container, and microwave in 20-second increments, stirring every time. The puree is ready when it is just warm to your touch.

Grab two clean spoons, one for you and one for your baby, and test your puree before serving.

Some infants like their puree cold, warm, or really warm, and some will devour it no matter the temperature. You will get to know your baby’s personal preferences as the two of you bond over food.


This one takes the longest time, but it is a great alternative to using a microwave.

Take the frozen puree cubes you want to serve out of your freezer, and place them in glass containers with airtight lids and leave in the fridge for 12 to 16 hours. Do not leave the puree in the container to thaw on the counter or anywhere out of the fridge, as bacteria will start to grow at a rapid rate – which is definitely not good.

The puree will be cold but thawed, so if your baby likes her puree warmed, you’ll have to finish the job using the microwave or stovetop method.


In the smallest saucepan, you can find, place the frozen puree cubes you want to serve, and gently thaw them on medium-low heat until warm, stirring occasionally.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long can you store homemade baby food?

You can store homemade purees in the fridge for up to 5 days or up to 4 months in the freezer. For small finger foods, depending on the item, you can store those in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Is it better to store baby food in glass or plastic?

You can do either! Just make sure to use plastic containers that are BPA-free and container no scratches or dents. To keep the plastic in tact, be sure to wash the containers by hand and do not place in the microwave.

6 Expert Tips on Storing Baby Food
  • Do Not Overfill: it’s important not to overfill any baby food storage container as the purees will expand slightly when freezing.
  • Label Purees: in order to know what you are feeding baby, it’s important to label your purees while they are freezing in the storage containers and when they are stored in freezer bags. Make sure you put the name of the puree as well as the date you made it on. Putting the date on it helps you remember when the puree will expire.
  • Keep Some/Freeze Some: whenever you make a puree, put several ounces in the fridge for your little one to enjoy that week, then freeze the rest of the batch for her to finish up at a later date.
  • Dedicate Space in Freezer: I found it helpful to dedicate a certain space in the freezer (a shelf or drawer) just for your homemade baby food purees. That way you don’t have to go rummaging around your freezer trying to find a puree when your baby is already hungry for dinner. I also found this helpful so that I could take a quick look in my freezer to know exactly how much purees we had on hand and when I would need to make some more.
  • Have Multiple Storage Containers on Hand: while not cheap, having multiple storage containers on hand is really needed to be able to have a good freezer stash of your own baby food. I usually recommend having at least 4 storage trays or 2 sets of jars. This way you can make and store a good amount of purees for the weeks ahead. With the trays, you will freeze the purees in them and then once frozen you can pop out the cubes and place them into a freezer bag, thus leaving you with more trays to work with. For the baby food jars, you will freeze the purees in the jars but they do not pop out, you have to thaw and serve the purees in order to get the jar ready for the next round of food. Either work great, just depends on how you work in your kitchen.
  • What to Look For: regardless of which jars or trays you go with, look for a freezer-safe and dish-washer-safe brand, cuz I know you have better things to do than handwash dishes!

Parent’s Review

I bought a set to test out as reusable containers for my breast milk and I am not disappointed!! I love that they’re able to hold a good quantity of milk even more so than the baggies and the main reason I got them is because I can easily just wash them and reuse them…. they fit perfectly fine and could be easily stacked so I’d say they’re the perfect size!! The lid is a twist on so you don’t have to worry about leaks at all which was another important thing for me very easy to use clean and reuse… the best part is I can use them for this now and later on when needed I can use them for other things so I’ll be getting my money’s worth with them.

Parent’s Review

The quality of these containers is definitely much superior than the other cheap ones we see here on Amazon. Why buy a cheaper thing to your baby if you will be using these containers over an over again? Also they are beautiful and very easy to clean. They are so good that I decided to buy more sets, I have 2 of 4 oz containers and 2 of the 6 oz containers. For now, that my baby is 8 months old his meals are 4 oz but might improve in the future so I decided have those bigger ones and fill with whatever quantity I want now.

5 Peculiar Cat Breeds

All of the above facts are true for most cats of any breed. But, nevertheless, different breeds of cats often have different dispositions and habits. In the continuation of the article, we will introduce you to some very unusual cat breeds that you may have never heard of before. So, some additional facts about the most peculiar cat breeds.



These cats are very sociable, they are often compared to dogs because they tend to follow their owner wherever he goes. Peterbalds love attention and are not shy about expressing their emotions when their beloved owner returns home.

Peterbalds are usually hairless, but some breeds may have a short, soft coat. Oval eyes and large ears are inherited by Peterbalds from Oriental cats. These cats have a long and slender body with a graceful triangular head.

Kurilian Bobtail

Photo: It is believed that these cats naturally crossed with Siberian cats and Japanese Bobtails. Two Kurilian Bobtails will never have two identical tails. They are as unique as human fingerprints.

Kurilian bobtails are independent by nature, but at the same time they are very loving. Representatives of the breed are considered lively, very curious, reliable and active. This is one of the smartest cat breeds. Cats of this breed are devoted to their owner and even like to walk on a leash.



This is a rare large cat breed with a unique appearance. The origin of the breed can be traced back to 2004. Highlander breeders wanted to create a cat with the characteristics of a wild cat.

The color of the Highlanders is usually gray or brownish with darker spots and stripes, similar to the fur pattern of a leopard or other wild cat.

Despite some resemblance to a lynx, cats of this breed are very affectionate and playful. They enjoy being the center of attention. Highlanders are very energetic and curious. In order for a relationship with such a cat to develop, you will need to constantly entertain it, so cat toys will be very useful to you.



Cats of this breed are of medium height, short hair and are characterized by a short or no tail. Manx cats come in all colors common to cats, but are rarely white.

Isle of Man cats are very balanced and calm by nature, so they are well suited for families with children. Manx are people-oriented, prone to communicating with their owners. It is not recommended to leave these cats alone for a long time, as prolonged loneliness can cause them emotional distress.



80s. The breed appeared due to spontaneous mutation. And Linda and Richard Coeli from Oregon, whose cat once gave birth to a curly kitten, brought out LaPerm cats. All LaPerm cats are descended from this Oregon cat.

Long hair and curly fur are the main features of this breed that distinguish LaPerm cats from others.

LaPerm cats are smart and even have a sense of humor. They are often described as clowns who enjoy fooling around. Cats of this breed quickly learn to open the door and are happy to pester a person to get his attention. These cats do not bond very strongly with humans, but in general they enjoy being in the same company as humans. LaPerms are moderately active cats that love to play.

If you can't decide between a cat and a dog, then a LaPerm cat might be right for you. Very soon you will become a devoted fan of this unusual, cute breed!

In this article, we tried to make it easier for you when choosing your first electric scooter. You will learn how to choose the right electric scooter and what you should pay attention to when choosing the first model so that the purchase does not disappoint.

Who will ride?

When you choose an electric scooter, first of all, you need to decide who will ride it. There are different models: for children and adults, paired and universal. Also, the model will depend on the weight of the rider. If this is a child, a model with a load capacity of up to 50 kg will do, there are standard power options for 80-100 kg, and the most powerful models can withstand a load of more than 100 kg.

The load must not be exceeded, as this can lead to failure of the scooter's engine, making it completely faulty. If you plan to ride together with a child, then the total weight of the riders should not exceed the maximum load.

In addition, scooters are available with or with a seat. Such scooters are chosen for long distances, when it becomes difficult to ride standing up. For older people, they are especially convenient.

If you plan to ride standing with your child, you need to choose models that allow you to install a special children's handle. It is necessary for the child to feel stable and safe while riding. Also for children's models, the width of the rail is also taken into account: it should be larger than in models for adults.

For young people and teenagers, the choice is simply huge: from off-road powerful models to elegant and foldable electric scooters. Such devices are easy to take with you on public transport or transport in the trunk of a car.

Scooter passability: attention to wheels

When choosing an electric scooter, you should also pay attention to its passability. For any device, wheels are of great importance, they differ depending on what surface the scooter will be mainly used on. Wheels can be from 4 to 14 inches in diameter. The smaller the diameter of the wheels, the worse the scooter will overcome pits, gravel, potholes and other bumps. The optimum diameter is 8 inches - it is suitable for a quiet ride on park paths, on pavers or rough terrain.

Wheel width also matters: the wider the wheel, the more stable the whole structure will be on the road. For most models of electric scooters, the wheels are divided into:

  • Cast wheels are the most durable, they are completely solid, it is almost impossible to pierce or break them, therefore models with such wheels are the most expensive. However, they are very hard, so every pebble under the wheel during the ride will be felt, which does not add comfort when moving.
  • Pneumatic wheels are inflatable, the softest, which provide maximum ride comfort. With them, roughnesses in the road, pebbles and branches are not felt if they fall under the wheels. The downside of these wheels is the ability to pierce them. Then you will have to change the camera or repair it by vulcanization, which motorists know about. The principle of operation of such a wheel is identical to automobile wheels.
  • Perforated wheels are originally cast, but have additional holes throughout the area, which puts them in a separate category. Due to these holes, manufacturers have achieved the effect of cushioning pneumatic wheels, but at the same time it is almost impossible to pierce such a wheel. The level of depreciation is quite comfortable, bumps are almost not felt.

Based on this information, we can conclude that for driving on rough terrain it is worth choosing models with cast or perforated wheels, wide, with a large diameter. For walks in the park, electric scooters with small wheels, even narrow ones, are suitable, since you don’t have to maneuver a lot over bumps.

Where will electric scooter rides take place?

For regular commuting, it is important to consider the capacity of the battery. Batteries should be enough for the trip there and back, so as not to cause discomfort to colleagues when charging their vehicles in the office. Folding options are convenient, since it is easy to move with them on public transport, and if necessary, you can quickly fold them into the trunk of a car. For storage, this feature is also very convenient.

For trips outside the city, for example, to the country house or fishing, in addition to suitable wheels, options such as a basket and a seat are useful. Good cushioning and high power are also important for driving on countryside.

For short walks and entertainment, it is worth choosing an easy and inexpensive transport. The power of the battery in this case is not very important, and in the event of its discharge, it will be possible to get to the house or the nearest transport, simply pushing off with your foot, like on a simple scooter.
