So i visited this website SEVERAL times before settling on avocado and sweet potato as my first attempts are homemade baby food. I got out my pot and my blender and my veggies and went to work. The avocado was SO simply- cut, scoop, mash, feed- unfortunately Chatham wasn't a fan, so easy isn't the best way to go in the Donley household. I then boiled two sweet potatoes (cut into chunks) for about 15-20 minutes (until they slid off the fork when "stuck") then I popped them in the blender with 3 1/2 oz. of formula, I added one ounce at a time until the desired consistency. Chatham LOVED the sweet potatoes- even better than the store bought kind. They were a little thicker so it didn't drip out the sides of his mouth as much.
We still have lots of canned baby food to introduce different foods to him- tomorrow is carrots! and Saturday will be bananas- I'll keep you posted.

I'd love to hear comments on recipes and tips from other homemade baby food mama's. What's easy, what's nutritionally best, what did your little one like best......

Chatham's Shout outs for today are:

  1. I'm not feeding solids to E. yet but I heard Super Baby Foods is a really good for telling what foods are most nutritious and best for development. I plan on getting it whenever we start making stuff.
