Apple

Suitable for 6-month-olds

Wash and core 4 pounds of apples (skins on), and cut them into 1-inch pieces. Simmer apples, covered, in a large saucepan with 1/3 cup water until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender. Working in small batches, blend until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve. For coarser texture, pass apples through a food mill, or pulse in a food processor. Fill 1/4-cup plastic containers or ice-cube trays. Makes 4 1/4 cups or about 48 cubes.

Pear

Wash, peel, and core 3 pounds of ripe pears. Cut them into 1-inch pieces. Simmer, covered, in a large saucepan with 1/3 cup water until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain; reserve cooking liquid. Transfer pears to a blender. Working in small batches, blend until smooth. Add reserved liquid if needed. Pass through a fine sieve for a smooth texture. For a coarser texture, mash with a fork. Fill 1/4-cup plastic containers or ice-cube trays with puree. Makes 2 1/2 cups or about 28 cubes.

Plum

Suitable for 6-month-olds

(Use same method for peaches, apricots, and other stone fruits.) Wash and quarter 2 pounds of ripe plums. Discard pits. Simmer plums, covered, in a large saucepan with 1/4 cup water until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer plums with water to a blender. Working in small batches, blend until smooth. Add up to 1/3 cup boiled and cooled water if needed. Pass mixture through a fine sieve for the smoothest texture. Fill 1/4-cup plastic containers or ice-cube trays with puree.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
