How to Use Your GoFreshBaby Reusable Food Pouch
Check out these helpful tips and hints from users that can help you make the most out of your GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch.
How to open your reusable pouch:
You may notice that your GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch has a very secure double zip seal closure. The seal was designed to prevents the pouch from being opened by your little one or rupturing due to excess pressure. As a result, you may find it difficult to open your GoFreshBaby Reusable Food Pouch at first. Here are a few helpful tips from our users that should help you out.
User Tip: Unscrew the cap prior to opening the double zip seal. Blow into the spout while the zip closure is sealed. The air will inflate the pouch and bottom gusset making it easier to open the double zip closure.
User Tip: While pulling apart the double zip closure, apply firm pressure with your finger directly into the seal in an effort to pry/wedge open the seal.
User Tip: Prior to washing, wet hands can make opening the pouch frustrating. Try opening the pouch prior to getting your hands wet.
Hint: As the pouch gets used, the plastic will loosen slightly over time and allow the zip seal to open more easily.
How to fill your reusable food pouch:
The GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch holds approximately 5 oz of semi-solid food. Filling the pouch is easy and convenient thanks to the double zip seal opening. At first, you may find it difficult to get food into the pouch without creating a mess while filling. Here are a few helpful tips from our users that should help you out.
User Tip: To maximize the filling capacity, make sure the bottom gusset is fully expanded prior to filling. Hold the pouch at an angle where the zip closure is parallel to the ground. This angel will allow you to fill the pouch to 5 oz without overflowing.
User Tip: To make filling easier, you may want to use a measuring cup with narrow pouring spout or a small funnel. Expand the zip seal and pour your favorite puree right in.
User Tip: Make sure you wipe away any food residue or seeds from the zip seal closure prior to closing. Overfilling your reusable pouch will cause spill over so it’s best to use a pre-set amount.

How to clean your reusable food pouch:
Cleaning your GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch is easy and convenient. We recommend washing by hand in warm soapy water but you can also place your pouch directly into the dishwasher (top rack). Here are some helpful tips on how to keep your pouch clean and ready to use.
User Tip: A bottle brush works great when cleaning your reusable food pouch in warm soapy water. Open the pouch at the zip seal and remove the cap. The bottle brush works great for getting the food residue out of the hard to reach corners.
User Tip: The smaller end bristle of the bottle brush works great for cleaning the spout and cap. Food residue here can build up in the screw top spout so make sure you clean this area thoroughly.
User Tip: When placing into the dishwasher, make sure that your pouch is expanded loosely over the top rack tines so that the zip seal opening is fully expanded. This will allow water to get inside the pouch and clean it thoroughly. Caps can be placed into the utensil basket or an enclosed washable bin.
