Ever made baby food?: Yes

If so, what resources did you use(books, magazines and internet): My friend taught me how to do it.

Any tips to share: Butternut sqush has been the easiest for me to make. I put it in the oven for 15 mintes after cutting it in half. and scrape out the filling then I mash it up and give to my baby. When she was younger I would blend it and then put it in Ice cube trays and freeze it then put it into ziploc bags. So simple.

Any questions you have?: What veggies are not good to make at home for baby. I have heard there are some veggies babies shouldnt have.

Anything else you want to share about yourself?: I just recently got on the natural bandwagon about a month before my baby was born. I really loved going organic. I think its so important teaching both our kids top eat healthy and take care of our world by also recycling.

Age: 32
Children (names & ages): Nathaniel - 16 months and Daniel - 3 weeks
Ever made baby food?: If so, what resources did you use(books, magazines and internet): Yes - just ground up table food or fruits and vegetables - didn't use any recipes
Any tips to share: Don't be afraid to use spices and herbs - my firstborn could and did eat anything, but I think my second one may have a weaker stomach.  He has problems so easily just from breastfeeding (I assume it is the food I am eating that is getting into the breast milk)
