Resources for making your own baby food?
DD is now 6mo and I’m assuming the pedi will have me starting solids soon. I think I want to make my own. Any resources either printed or online on how to get started? Or should I start off w/the jarred stuff and then make my own when I know what she likes/isn’t allergic to.
I know some stuff you have to cook and add liquid to get to the right consistency- can I add ebm instead?

http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/ is a good online reference for making your own baby food and introducing solids.

I agree with Marci's recommendation and a good resource book is super baby food by ruth yaron. BUT, I prefer the intro schedule on the wholesome baby food website. I've also heard about freshbaby.com but haven't visited. It's really quite easy to make your own baby food, and it's a lot of fun too!

I agree with both of the PP's. I got the Super Baby Food book and it is great, but a bit overwhelming. I still refer back to it for some things now. I also prefer the lists and charts on wholesomebabyfood.com. They have recipes there too. I added EBM to DD's pureed foods (particularly sweet potatoes) but you can add water as well. I noticed that when I made things like zucchini or squash I didn't have to add water or BM to it, but some oatmeal to thicken it up a bit! HTH

I purchased the book "Mommy Made (and Daddy too!) which contains good information about making your own baby food.

I love the Super Baby Food book. For someone who doesn't cook, it made it easier for me to make my dd's food.
