As a new mom and someone who stays on the internet for the most part of day, researching on what’s best for my baby has become a daily routine. Now that my little boy is starting to eat, researching on homemade baby food has become a hobby.
First time I’ve heard about purees and was really innocent on how to make one. Excited to try out these homemade recipes, I even went as far as buying the Philips Avent Combined Steamer and Blender.
Most pediatric sources recommend cooking fruits that will be fed to an infant until that infant is about 8 months old. Bananas and avocado are a few of the exceptions. For infants who start solids prior to 6 months old, cooking fruits is really a good idea. Cooking fruits breaks them down thus enabling easier digestion in an immature tummy. An older baby will be better able to handle the fibers and sugars of raw fruits than will the baby who is younger and just starting on solids.
