    Default What do I use to make purees?

    I know bm would be best, but I can't pump enough to do that. Is water OK? Tap water or do I need to use a special kind? Or would formula be better? I have a bunch of formula samples that I got from the hospital that have never been used. I need some liquid to thin out the solids. TIA!

    I don't want to do BLS where they have it not mashed right now.

    I would choose water.
    Sometimes you don't need to add any liquid.

    I've only added bm a couple of times (I'm too lazy to pump). I usually add some of the cooking/steaming water.

    I add water because I don't have enough bm to use that way (low supply, too). Plus if I have to throw some of the food out I'd hate to be throwing out milk with it!

    Well, I use jarred foods, but for cereal I use BM. I just hand express for that.
