Brooklyn enjoying coconut cream.
With our other kiddos, I read the book Super Baby Food and made homemade organic purees and introduced a wide range of healthy foods from about 6 months on. I followed all the directions and learned how to pick the right foods, steam them, blend them, and freeze enough to last a few weeks. And I enjoyed it! It felt meaningful and important to feed my children this way.
This time, however, I'm happy to mostly nurse Brooklyn and take a more laid-back approach to introducing foods. I'd like to do just a few baby foods, and then jump straight to finger foods. We'll see how she does as time goes on. :)
Next stop, mashed avocado from Grandpa and Grandma's avocado ranch in California!
Credit for this baby food idea goes to my friend Julie. Her sweetie did a taste test with some coconut cream and it was a success, so we thought we'd give it a try as well! :)
