Want to make my own baby food but don't know where to begin! Help! Lock Rss

Hi, everyone here has given you pretty good advice already. One thing I want to add is it can be a good idea to always include some kind of finger food so your baby learns to feed themselves and it encourages them to try different whole foods. I started giving both my DS finger foods (as well as mashed/pureed)at 6 mths and by 7 - 8 mths they were able to feed themselves. My youngest is now 8 mths and eats a range of finger foods banana, pear, avocado, tomatoe, sweet potatoe, potatoe, pasta, bread, chicken, pumpkin, turkey, chesse to just name afew. The other day he even managed to eat Cheesey Tomatoe Tuna Risoto by himself.
I find cutting them into s rusk shape/size makes finger foods easy to handle for bub.

Just remember food for babies is just another thing to play with and explore, so have fun with it smile

Sounds like all your questions have been answered, but just wanted to add..

if you're just starting out I found the book "Top 100 purees' by Annabel karmel to be fantastic!! All the recipes can be used when they first start solids until they are eating 'normal' food. DD is now 13 months and has some definite favourtites from it. I actually double or triple the recipes and we have them for dinner as well, they are yummy!!

Before you spend good money on books, try your local library. They should have a good variety of weaning, recipe and general baby advice books.



Thankyou so much. All the feedback I have received has been fantastic and I am feeling much more confident to give things a go.

Thankyou everyone! smile
Oh, forgot to add... the following websites are good for recipes too:
