Hi there! I am pretty inexpierenced in the kitchen..so these questions may sound silly, but I would really love to know the answers and since neither of my sisters made their own baby food, I thought you might know best! Annabella is almost 5 months..and I was going to try sweet potato for her first food. I read that baking them would be the best way? If you can't bake them..then steam them? Well, how exactly would you bake it? Just put it on a tray in the oven and once it's done..let it cool then mash it? I also bought online one of those glass graters and am waiting for it to arrive, has anyone used one of those before? I couldn't figure out how or what kind of puree machine to buy..so I came across the glass grater online and saw a demo, it seems to work great! (At least for making applesauce) I might avoid the banana because she already struggles to poop here and there and I don't want to make things worse~anyhow, I could use a good push in the right direction~thanks all!
