baby food: DIY yogurt melts, the perfect treat for teething babies


Thank you to Happy Family Yogurt for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Happy Family Baby Yogurt CupsIt has been 3 months since Ben first started solids! I started by making my own purees, and eventually also began to mix in some store-bought purees after the first month or so. But, I got so caught up in trying to figure out what foods to make for Ben to try, I completely forgot about the easy and healthy food that’s perfect for one of baby’s first foods, at the age of 6 months. Whole Milk Baby Yogurt!

The first few bites, Ben made quite the funny faces, but I think it was probably since the texture was much thicker than any of the purees he had tried up until this point. And now, yogurt is our go-to breakfast! Not only is it the perfect breakfast food, when it’s frozen, it’s the perfect yummy treat for your teething baby. And it’s super easy to make. 

I just put wax paper on a baking sheet (and then on a cooling rack because the baking sheet I chose didn’t fit in the freezer). I put the yogurt in a sandwich baggie, cut off the tip, and squeezed them out into small circles. You can also just use a spoon. Pop them in the freezer for a few hours and that’s it. I made different sizes, the perfect size seemed to be able the size of a dime.

Which is good for little ones learning to eat, bad if they get dropped onto their laps and you don’t grab them right away. Ben likes to pick up his food with his right hand and then passed it to his left and puts it in his mouth… so by the time he gets it into his mouth, he has some on his hands. 

Keep in mind, all yogurt is not created equal. Happy Baby Yogurt Cups are great for babies because they are made with Whole Milk Yogurt with Vitamin D. They contain Probiotics and no added sweeteners. They’re also USDA Organic and non-GMO. Happy Family Baby Yogurt Cups Happy Family Baby Yogurt CupsHappy Family Baby Yogurt CupsHappy Family Baby Yogurt CupsYou can find Happy Baby Yogurt Cups at Walmart.

    • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

    • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

    • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
    • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

    • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

    • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

    • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

    • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
    • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
