Pureed Baby Foods
Once you’ve determined that your baby is ready for solids, you will begin to give your baby Stage 1 baby foods. Although we use the term “solids”, these first foods really amount to liquidy, soupy types of foods that are very easy for a young baby to swallow. So the name solids is a bit of a misnomer, and there is nothing really “solid” about them because they should be so liquidy that you can almost drink them. Stage 1 pureed baby foods include single fruit and vegetable purees, and different types of single grain baby cereal, most usually rice. You’ll want to introduce one food at a time, waiting at least four days to make sure your baby doesn’t exhibit any adverse reaction to any food.
You can either buy or consider making homemade baby food at this stage. In this video, I try to provide an easy, stress-free, and fun guide to beginning this amazing stage in your baby’s life.
