I use Gerber but since I live an hour away from the Heinz plant in Pittsburgh, Heinz is really big here so I do get a lot of Heinz baby food. Plus Christian seems to like it better. Not sure why. Plus it is at least .10 cheaper a jar.

I use both Gerber & Heinz. The Heinz is about .10 less expensive here, too. Hailey likes it as well as the other so why not!! I use gerber juices & cereal though.

********I make my own*********

I do use Gerber cereal that we recieve from wic though. Also, if something is out of season or hard to puree' then i will buy a jar of it. Usually whatever is on sale.

I have always used Gerber ... cereal, baby food. Emily is eating the Gerber Graduates now (pick up and "spoon"), but she really likes Heniz' Chicken and Stars.

I use Beechnut. I have tried Heinz & Gerber, but Alexander seems to prefer Beechnut. I do buy Gerber Oatmeal with bananas because Alexander loves it and I can't find that mix in Beechnut.

As for juices, we use regular juice and just add water to it - it's a lot cheaper!! We also use regular applesauce because it's the same thing as what's in the baby food jars and cheaper.

I know that if I really wanted to be cheap that I would make Alexander's food, but it's just too easy to buy it!!

I use Gerber cereal,juice, and sometimes baby food. I also use Beech-Nut baby food--depends who has the cheapest. Peyton likes about everything we feed him, he hasn't reached that picky stage YET! LOL!
