Homemade Butternut Sqaush Puree

So, I decided last night that I was going to make some Butternut Squash soup for Eric and me and some puree for Gabe. Gabe was a little confused at 1st but he ate 2 tablespoons of the puree plus 2 tablespoons of cereal. He had a little left that he couldn't finish but he almost ate all of it and really seems to enjoy his new veggie. Next we are going to try carrots, but for the next few days he is going to get Butternut Squash. Our soup was ok, but not great. I need to find out how Newks makes their soup because it is SO good!!


  1. I'd probably hold off on the carrots until he's around 6 months or so. It has the tendency to carry nitrates in it. Peas, and green beans are good though. Nathan's first puree was Butternut squash too! He still loves it!

  2. Carrots were fine for was actually his first veggie. Peas gave Nicolaus really bad gas (and still do).

  3. I really want to do something that wont clog him up too bad. I would like to do sweet potatoes, but they are so pricey right now. I may go ahead and do some carrots, but I think I want to throw in a fruit...maybe pears, but I'm not for sure yet.
