How to Make Carrot Pureé For Your Weaning Baby

1. Chop up carrotts into small pieces.
2. Gently cook carrots in a saucepan using only a little freshly drawn water so it is not too wet when puréed.
3. Mash with a fork or push the stewed carrotts through a plastic sterilised sieve into a sterilised bowl (do not add anything to it like sugar, salt or honey).

You can add 2 tsps of baby rice made into a paste with expressed breast milk or formula if you want to.

You don’t want it to be too solid or runny, so you can always add a little more expressed breast milk, formula or cooled boiled water to make it the right consistency.

Bon Appétit!

If you make up a small bowl of pureé  (just a couple of teaspoons) and your baby yums it up, it looks like they may be ready to wean (check the weaning chapter in my book Happy Baby, Happy Family’). If they aren’t really interested but are showing other weaning signs, leave it a week or two before you try again.

METHOD

  1. Chop up fruit or vegetables into small pieces.
  2. Gently stew in saucepan using only a little freshly drawn water so it is not too wet when pureéd.
  3. Mash with a fork or push the cooked fruit or vegetable through a plastic sterilised sieve into a sterilised bowl (do not add anything like salt, sugar or honey).

Try to only introduce a couple of new tastes a week to start with to give your baby the opportunity to discover each flavour.

First Stage Weaning – Baby Rice & Cereal

How to Make Baby Rice Or Cereal

If you make up a small bowl of baby rice or any first stage baby cereal with some breast milk or formula and your baby yums it up, it looks like they may be ready to wean (check the weaning in my book ‘Happy Baby, Happy Family’). If they aren’t really interested but are showing other weaning signs, leave it a week or two before you try again.

1. Sterilise the bowl and weaning spoon (if they’re under six months).
2. Put 2 tsps of plain baby rice into a bowl.
3. Mix in 2 tsps of expressed breast milk or warmed formula milk and stir with a weaning spoon until it is a smooth paste.

You can also give your baby a little fruit or vegetable puree mixed in with the prepared baby rice or on its own.

You don’t want it to be too solid or runny, so you can always add a little more expressed breast milk, formula or cooled boiled water to make it the right consistency.
