My baby turned four months two weeks ago. During his 4th month wellness visit, our pediatrician suggested us to start feeding him solid food. He adviced us to introduce yellow or orange colored food like banana, apple, carrot, squash, avocado, sweet potato etc by feeding him just one-two spoonfuls twice daily.
We introduced him to Apple, banana, carrot, avocado, mixed vegetable purée. He relished Apple and banana purées the most.
Today, I prepared sweet potato purée. He enjoyed his meal😀. Sharing the recipe.
Sweet potato – 1/4 – cut into small pieces
Breast milk or formula- 1/2 ounce
Gerber Oatmeal Cereal- this is finely cut oats.
1) Place a saucepan with 1/2 cup of water on the stove. Add sweet potato pieces to it and allow it to soften. Test for softness by crushing a potato piece with your fingers.
2) To the blender, add the soft potato pieces, milk and a spoonful of oats. I use “Baby bullet” which is specially designed for preparing baby food.
3) Blend the ingredients to desired consistency.
