First Foods ~ Here We Go
We started her with Sweet potatoes in April when she was 6 months old and she adored them. An easy recipe: simply roast one large sweet potato (I recommend organic) in the oven on a lightly oiled (to prevent sticking) pan for about 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until very tender when poked with a knife. Then after the potato cools a bit simply scoop out the guts from the skin and puree till smooth. I added breast milk to thin it out in the beginning and then formula when I was out of that. You can freeze in ice trays and store for up to 3 months. Here is a link to a set that is BPA free and comes with lids!
In the beginning one potato makes quite a bit to last a long time but as they grow batches can as well also as we got close to 7 months I added nutmeg and cinnamon to them.
