how to make baby food with breast milk



Making Baby Food Using Breast Milk

It’s ideal for parents to introduce baby food into their little ones’ diets gradually. If you’re hoping to make baby food with your own breast milk, you can actually create a variety of baby friendly dishes with some simple ingredients:

Ingredients Needed:


    • Breast milk (fresh or frozen)


    • 3-4 ounces of pureed fruit (fresh or frozen)


    • 3 tablespoons of oatmeal, quinoa, barley


    • Plant-based milk alternatives


    • Vegetable puree




    1. Mix some breast milk with pureed fruit and your grain of choice. You can either serve as is, or blend together in a blender.


    1. Add a few ounces of plant-based milk alternative or vegetable puree for extra nutrition.


    1. Heat and serve, or you can pour the baby food mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once the cubes are frozen, you can store them in a labeled freezer bag for future meals.


    1. When baby is ready to eat, thaw a cube of baby food in the refrigerator, or heat it in a pan or in the microwave.


It’s best to offer a variety of baby foods over time that gradually increase in texture. You also need to avoid introducing too many new foods at once; this could lead to allergies.

Whether you’re making your own baby food or just introducing your little one to solids, breast milk is a fantastic nutrition source that’s easy to include. Just remember to mix it with other ingredients so your little one can continue to get a variety of nutrients.
