Today our family embarks on a new vegetable journey with our daughter. She is six months old and has been given the green light by her doctor to start eating vegetables. I nursed her for the first six months and plan to continue well after. But I know that at this point, she needs more nutrients in her diet.
I boiled some sweet potato, pureed, added some breast milk to the food, and put them in re-usable molds from babycubes.com . While researching what vegetables to give baby first, I came across this site called babycentre.co.uk. They provided some information on what foods to give baby first. One of the foods was puree of sweet potato.
Another site provided some home-made baby food recipes. That got me excited because the site, wholesomebabyfoods.momtastic.com, provided nutriotional information about the sweet potato and what other vegetables I can mix in after we ensure she is not allergic to the vegetable.
I know one of my parent mentors, Gabriel, stated that he would wait four days before he introduced another food to his son. I know for some people it is known, but as a new parent I want to make sure the baby is getting all of her nutrients and something that is homemade.
