    Default Forgot how to purée baby food

    Here I am steaming carrots, but I forgot how to purée! It still comes lumpy from the Barmix

    Carrot is a bit like that. I can get it smooth in my food processor, but I don't like getting it dirty just to purée carrot so I just use my Bamix. They get used to lumps pretty quickly so it's not a problem for long. Maybe try adding more water, that should at least help a little.

    Thanks! Ds1 took awhile to adjust to lumps, plus I was paranoid. Maybe this time around i'll be more confident!

    Ps, off topic, who is that in your profile pic?

    Not everybody is interested in baby led weaning

    You can always add a little bit of water from the pot to help make it a bit smoother

    If he's ready for solids, afew tiny lumps shouldn't matter at all.

    I used to add a little apple puree to add some moisture to help it mix smooth better
