HI Tara. My daughter is 7 and a half months old and I too have been making my own baby food. The website that I've chosen as a guideline for me is:http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/homemad...
I've loved this site, it has recipe's for foods of all kinds, out of all food groups. Also I'm not sure if you've been a breastfeeder or a formula feeder, but I suggest you mix all your puree's with whichever you've been feeding him.

I hope this helps


Yes I love that site as well, lots of good information!!

The book Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfled is good. It's main purpose is to hide veggies into things your kids will eat, like pureed broccoli in brownies, and stuff like that. I know it's not specifically baby food, but when I started giving my son solids, I just wanted pureed fruits and veggies to start and she has a whole section in the front on how to puree all kids of fruits and veggies (cooking them or not, how long, etc). It was wonderful. And the book will be really valuable later on when I do have to start hiding broccoli in brownies! :)


hmmm I heard about this! Such a good idea, I will have to check it out, thank you!

I use the book Super Baby Food. http://www.superbabyfood.com/ . My husband's family has a lot of allergies. I had heard that this might be related to children starting foods too soon. I used this with both my boys and at 8 & 5 they are both (knock on wood) not showing signs of allergies or asthma.

Hi "365 recipes for babies, toddlers and children" by Bridget Wardley and Judy More is a great book. It is divided into sections first solids 4-6months, moving on 6 months onwards, 1-2 year olds etc. It also has a meal planner for the different age groups. When it gets to the 3-6 years old recipes it is devided into breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks. Gives info on nutrition, allergies, food safety. It even tells you what items you need in your cupboard and fridge to make all the recipies like a shopping list. It cost $12 so it's cheap too. Goodluck :-)

Hi Tara.  I can definitely recommend Cooking for Baby.  It's from William-Sonoma.  I have home made all of my son's food since he began solids and I think it's the best thing for him.  I like the book because it has a variety of dishes to choose from and it breaks it up by months.  It tells you good beginner foods and why and it goes from there.  It also gives you some nutritional facts as well.  Good beginner foods are apple, pear, peach, plum, zucchini purees.  Squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes are also good.  And a really great food is Avocado.  It's a super food with a TON of good nutrients!!  I hope this helps.
