Bananas are high in potassium. In our place we get a type of banana called as "matti pazham". It will small in size and smells so sweet. We mash them up and feed babies. You dont have to steam them. It is really good for babies. But i have heard that you cannot find it in many places. But i am sure that nendran pazham is easily available in all places. And it makes a great baby food. But i prefer to steam it and feed baby, so it is easily digestable. Plus it is a great food for weight gaining in babies.
Things to remember:
1)Texture of the puree depends upon you, i would recommend you to make the puree smooth.
my opinion & experience banana wont cause any constipation in
babies. I feed this banana puree thrice a week.
I don't prefer freezing purees. I make it fresh everyday.
5)Ripe Bananas are less likely to have any allergenic reactions.
6)Use ripe banana for this, it will taste good and is easy digestable.
