Get a large can of Sweet Potatoes and just pour it in the blender (if you prefer, drain the syrup in the can and replace it with water). Add 1 cup of water. Blend that together. Then pour the blended sweet potatoes into a pitcher. Pour equal parts Applesauce into the blender with half a cup of water. Blend and add to the pitcher. Then stir the two together. You can make any changes you want. We have substituted a large can of peaches for the applesauce. And we have done carrots for the sweet potatoes.
With our first two we only used the sweet potato/applesauce combo, but our friends and family started pointing out that our baby’s nose was starting to turn a little orange :) As a result we started to mix things up a little bit with different combinations.
Peas and Pears. With this we just poured in a big can of pears (29 oz) and two smaller cans of peas (15 oz). If you choose to do frozen fruits and/or vegetables you would just need to experiment with adding more water. If I find something that works, I don’t need to add a bunch of other variables, but if you are looking for inspiration just walk the baby food aisle at the grocery store and make it at home.

I know people who make their baby food and freeze it in ice cube trays really like the Boon. They put a couple frozen food cubes in the Boon Squirt before church and then when they go out to eat after church the food is ready in the Boon. I do have a Boon, but I find the bottle is so much more convenient, and is one less gadget to buy.~Julia

Great tips – thanks so much for sharing at the Baby Shower, Alice x
I breast fed my kids exclusively until the ages of 9 months (daughter), 7 months (son), and 9 months (son). Each child is different and each parent is different. I found breastfeeding to be a very painful process to start, but after the first two months it was great and very convenient. So for that reason, I didn’t feel like preparing food, and thinking about what could they have, etc. Others want to back off breastfeeding earlier. My mom did the same thing for the three of us. Your breast milk is totally chocked full of everything your baby needs!!
I can’t wait to start making this for Emily Grace! At what age did you start your children on this concoction?
