I have a series of small pots and non-stick mini frypans have proven to be perfect to reheat tiny portions for a tiny tummy. I can warm and mush to the right texture at the same time.
Particularly, this small non-stick pan I purchased years ago to cook crumpets and single serves of eggs, has had a bit of a workout recently for Z.

As you can no doubt tell, I'm not a fan of making things tricky unnecessarily and like that Z fits into our lives by eating simpler versions or components of our meals.
He has been tasting our meals from even just a few weeks old (not mouthfuls like now, just flavours on his tongue) and we are yet to find something that he doesn't eat greedily. On one occasion when I pureed some of our risotto it was too think and tacky and he started to refuse it after a few mouthfuls but once watered down with milk a little he was happy to eat the rest.
Last week I brought a sippy cup (more baby stuff!) thinking that he would learn to use it but he seems much more interested in sipping the occasional water out of an adult glass than his fancy gum protecting thing with handles. Before I know it he'll be asking for a his water in stemware!
