    Default Stupid question!?!

    Hi all,
    I've just started solids with DS, just tasting here and there every few days. Do I need to sterilise his bowl and spoon after each feed? Or is hot soapy water ok?

    Also, are there any good baby food recipe books out there?

    Hot soapy water is fine, he will be out eating dirt in the garden in a couple of months time, so it is ok not to sterilise his plates!
    I don't really use cook books for my baby food. Just cook up whatever veges are in the fridge, wizz them up together plus or minus some kind of meat, and hope for the best! Don't get too many complaints around here!
    My only tip is, when adding meat, it is best to use milk rather than water if you need extra liquid, for some reason the water makes the meat go all grainy, funny textury.

    When did you start adding meat? And what kind of meat do you add? Thanks for your advice!

    I started my dd on meat within about 2 weeks of starting solids. I would brown off some lamb or beef or chicken in a pan and toss in some vegies (ones that I had already introduced) and some salt free homemade vegie stock and slow cook it until the pumpkin or sweet potato were basically a puree and the meat was falling apart and then if necessary I would whiz it inn the food processor.

    I just pop my stuff into the dishwasher on the top shelf.

    Have you read the sticky in this section on how/when and what solids to start on? There is some good general info there.

    If you look an Amazon there are lots of weaning books you could buy. If you are interested in Baby Led Weaning try the books by Gill Rapley, or for more purees focussed Annabel Karmel is very popular.

    Or you could just look online for info. I used http://wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com/ for basic info on what veggies/fruits and how to cook them and now use http://www.babyledweaning.com/recipes/ for recipe ideas.
