Banana Puree for Babies / Mashed Banana for Babies - Puree for Babies


In our place we get a banana called as Matti Pazham. It is small in size and easy to digest for baby. You can feed any small variety banana for your baby in there raw form. But nendrapazham which is called as ripe plantain should be steamed..

Things to remember:
1)Texture of the puree depends upon you, i would recommend you to make the puree smooth.
2)Your baby wont empty the whole bowl all at once, start with few spoons then increase it gradually as days pass by.
3)In my opinion & experience bananas wont cause any constipation in babies.

4) I don't prefer freezing purees. I make it fresh everyday. But if you are busy or find difficult to get time, then freeze it in individual containers and thaw it overnight in fridge. 


How to introduce solid food to your baby:

How to sterilize baby feeding bowls: 
Start by sterilizing the bowls and spoons which you are going to feed your baby. Take the bowl and spoon in a large saucepan, cover it with water and bring them to a boil. Boil it rapidly for 5 mins. Now you can turn the heat off and leave them stay in the hot water till use. 
How to make Banana Puree: 
Take a firm fresh and sweet banana. Wash them well.

Peel them, cube them. 
Now take them in a blender along with some water and puree them. 
Pour into clean bowl and feed your baby.
