I do make my own baby food. It's easy we use the Beaba Cook(steams and purees in the same container). Though you can use any container you want to store babyfoods. We got two sets of 6 containers that hold 2oz by oxo. We got them at Buy Buy Baby so we could use the 20% off coupons. Anyway the 2oz containers are good initially but later on they'll need more than the 2oz so I would get at least two sets unless you have other bigger containers to put your food in.
