Something small like the Bullet is handy since it's a lot easier to clean than a full size blender, though you can make larger batches of baby food and freeze it in ice cube trays for portioning. We thought about it, but ended up mostly buying regular baby food and making a few things, like sweet potatoes, at home.

Will do - like you, we have tossed the idea around, but have yet to move forward - so far we are buying the little jars and packages of baby food, but wife is thinking we could save $$ by doing ourselves - I just want to make sure he gets all his nutrients.

We have a juicer and a food processer. We use both a lot. Fresh apple and pineapple juice is goooood! For us the juicer was a good purchase.

It all depends on what apples you get. Some are juicier than others. For the apples I used, it took roughly a small bag of them. And a regular size pineapple. Apples + Pineapple = Yummmy I believe they may have been the red delicious I used. Since I am originally from Wa State. I prefer to get the WA State red delicious apples. I was surprised to see Wal*Mart here in Pensacola selling them. Any apple from Wa State is good. Of course I am a little biased. Anyways... Small bag of apples and a pineapple usually makes about about 2 quarts of juice.
