Its something about losing nitrates in the process. Although, I asked my pedi and she said its really not THAT big a deal. But thats JMO of course, do whats best for you and yours as alwasy

I alwasy used my blender. And made a lot. It just seemed to make the most sense- I didn't like making small amounts all the time, so if I was going to go through the trouble of making it, I made a lot and froze the remaining portion in ice cube trays and then when they froze, I popped them out nad put them in zip lock baggies with the date and kind of veggie they were, and then whenever my son needed to eat, I just grabbed 2 cubes and microwaved for 30secs and it was so much easier that way.

Yeah I second that. My ped. said anything is okay as long as it is pureed really good. I also do bigger than one serving batched and then freeze the servings in a mini cupcake pan.

I use an old-fashioned potato masher. DD was chewing pretty much from Day 1, though, and didn't need a soupy texture. She enjoys her "heartier" mashed fruits and veggies.

it is the magic bullet. I know you can get online and at some stores. My dad got mine off of an infomercial.

Re: What is the best thing to use for pureeing baby food?

Well, I use a fork for soft stuff...bananas, baked potatoes, etc. We have a baby food handheld grinder from BRU that I have used for 2 babies now. It works well for small stuff, I can get one serving of veggies, pasta, etc out of it.

If I fix a big batch of stuff, I use my blender and then freeze it in ice cube trays. It is funny, my DD;s favorite meal is leftover pot roast, potatoes, and carrots that I blended up. She loves that stuff!!

We also use a mesh bag thingy. Frozen grapes work well when teething. Right now we have a bunch of ripe mangoes in our back yard so I will slice one of those up in there for her. It keeps her busy while I am working in the kitchen!

She also likes to finger feed herself cooked peas.

We used a fork....she started really eating solids at about 9 months, so pureeing them to a liquid wasn't necessary.
