Straining the juices

When making 1st food purees, did any of you strain the juices before freezing?

I didn't with Philip, I just poured the puree into ice cube trays, froze them, and defroosted as needed. But then I would frequently have to use baby milk to make it the right consistency. 

So my idea is to puree a gob of pears, strain it for ages on a sieve (maybe some cheesecloth?), and collect the pear juice. Then freeze the juice separately along with the pears so that if any consistency changes are needed I can add the pear juice vitamins BACK into the puree, and also keep the taste of the pears more natural. That way not everything ends up tasting like fruity milk. 

DId anyone else do this? I'll report back with my success or failure... 

Henry is on day 3 of rice and I swear to God he *snorts* it. Chews properly, eats every little bit.... we only got the sweet rice-face mess for a day!
