Chowpup going on solids. I plan to start making squash and carrots and the like for him this week. I'd like to make more than just the tiny amounts he's going to eat at first. Any thoughts on freezing (and thawing), canning and cooling, etc.? And another question. Potatoes. German baby books mention mashed potatoes, the ones here seem to be talking about rice cereal, squash and carrots for starters. Do German speaking babies have different stomachs? I bet he would like mashed potatoes with expressed breastmilk.
