I would bake them in their skins (more nutritious that way) and then scoop out the flesh to purée into baby food. You could also peel and boil them, but I think they taste better baked.

Can you boil them like you would white potatoes to make mashed potatoes? Idk, never cooked sweet potatoes or made my own baby food.

bake it for an hour. The skin will fall off. Throw it in your processor with a little water or breastmilk...thin to your liking that way.

375 for smaller potatoes. 400 for large thick potatoes.

Do the same for a squash (butternut is best). Just cut it in half first, scoop out the seeds, and roast on a cookie sheet for about an hour. Test it with a fork to see when its your desired tenderness. DS LOVES my squash and sweet potatoes.

Put them in the microwave for about 4 min. For a medium size sweet potato or you can peal them cut them in to pieces and boil them until they are soft.

I always just boil them until fork tender, peel them, throw them in the blender with a little bit of water. Done!
