Sun Salutation
Looking for a good introductory book. My baby's 5 months and I know nothing about feeding solids; except that you're not supposed to start before 6 months.
I'd like to read about baby-led-weaning, and also about making my own purees (I'm not sure if BLW excludes purees or not?).

Thanks!

boxart
i just got a Munchkin baby Food Grinder and a Magc Bullet blender for my birthday.  i'm so excited, i don't want to wait till March!! (Matthew is 12 weeks on Tuesday)

does anyone have any recipies for foods that i could use the blender for?  (no bannanas or meats though, as we have a bannana allergy in the family and our son will be raised vegitarian untill he's old enough to make his own decision on whether or not he wants to eat meat)

Has anyone made their own yogurt out of breastmilk? Anyone know of an alternative to store bought yogurt starter?? I would like to be able to do this w/o using dairy yogurt.

In the fall I like to make hot cranberry applesauce for myself. Is it too early to offer stewed cranberries to a 7mo old? I don't make it too terribly tart, like 4 or 5 parts apples to 1 part cranberries.

I plan to start my son on some chicken today at lunch and I have a couple of questions!

- What is the best way to cook a chicken breast for a baby?
- Can I freeze cooked chicken and how long does it last for?

TIA!

krys - peek a boo
I had some really ripe nice soft juicy pears. They were so ripe that I didn't bother steaming them. I just peeled and cored them, ran them through the blender, and froze them. 

In the time it took to froze them (just an hour or so), the pears turned brown - the color of brown sugar! 

They seem to smell and taste just fine, so I decided to feed them to my eight month old, and he had no problem with them.

I was just wondering if that had happened to anyone else, and if there was anything I could or should do about it.
6th-Oct-2008 12:07 pm - She's Over Purees.
FALL
My daughter is 10 months and just recently started refusing purees. She is very much interested in what we are eating and when I feed her off our plate she eats like a champ. I still have tons of pureed veggies in the freezer but I am wondering what you do when you move on from purees. I found some recipes on wholesomebabyfood but they don't talk much about freezing them. Can I make these recipes and freeze them the same way I would a puree? She goes to daycare and I would like to continue to send her homemade baby food.

What is your favorite recipe to prepare and freeze?

I made my 2 year old a yummy macaroni cheese and ham bake today and he approves :D Yay!

I followed this recipe
Mmm MmmmmmCollapse )

Now, oh wise ones, what vegies can I hide in the sauce? and how do I do it so it's not too sloppy or too strong tasting? :)

I think I might pack myself some for work-lunch tomorrow too ;) :D

krys - peek a boo
hi everyone!

My son is nearly at his six month mark. He's sampled some baby rice cereal, pears, apples, avocado, and carrots occasionally, but is still primarily breastfed. I'm planning on starting to introduce solid foods on a regular basis after his six month checkup in about a week.

I'm having difficulty locating small containers that I can use to store batches of baby food where I live here in Switzerland (just moved here from Texas two months ago). Does anyone have any ideas of where to find small sealable containers? 

Also if you have any favorite places that you like to buy containers at in the US via the internet, please let me know, because I'm thinking I might buy some, ship them to my mom, and then pick them up when we fly home for Thanksgiving.

Thanks!

sam cheese
Hi, I'm new to this community, so i apologize if this has already been discussed.
My son, Sam, is 7.5 months old and LOVES to eat! I'm really enjoying making all of his food, it's so easy, and I love that i know EXACTLY what it is he is ingesting.
He gets very mad when I am eating something and he can't have a bite of what i am eating. This has brought up the question of when can i feed my baby hummus, since i eat it often? I use  wholesomebabyfood.com as a huge resource, but I can't find much about it there. Nor can i find much on baby center or various other baby sites. So I'm just wondering if any of you feed your babies hummus, and if your baby has had an allergic reaction to it?
Thanks! :)
