Agree with the below comments, what to feed a newborn is hardly a difficult dilemma - they should be having milk til, ideally, 6 months! 17 weeks is the very earliest a baby's gut can cope with digesting food, and even then it should only be done once seeking medical advice first.

Love the recipes on here and use the site often, but you should seriously stop suggesting people shovel puree into their babies at 3 months, it's not good for babies at all; and I'd suggest anyone considering early weaning researches the health implications first.

I am going to have to agree with the previous comment, there is no such thing as 'newborn food', the only food a newborn should have is preferably breast milk or an age appropriate formula.

Giving your 'new little bundle of joy' solids straight from hospital is very dangerous, slow cooked or otherwise!

Great idea, and I am not in any way criticising this use of a slow cooker for making baby food. However, I felt people should be aware that the World Health Organisation recommend that babies should not be given any form of solid food (nothing other than breastmilk or formula) until they are 4-6 months old. The later the better.
Thanks so much for all the slow cooker recipes, they are great!

Do You Have A New Baby And Donít Know What To Feed It? Then Check This Article Out!

So, you just brought home a new little bundle of joy. You're on a tight budge perhaps and wonder how you might be able to afford your newborns food? I got a little secret to tell you that you may not know, and if you do, well then I got a few recipes to add to your collection. Yes, that's right, you can make your baby's food right in that mini slow cooker. Amazing isn't it? Itís perfectly safe to do this as many moms have been doing this for a while now through some research I have conducted. Don't believe me? Well, give a try at these recipes and see if your baby loves them. From the ingredients, you'll see they're very safe and very healthy.

Best part of making my own baby food is that you know exactly what goes into the foods you prepare. If you have a larger slow cooker, just prepare the foods into separate smaller jars, fill the slow cooker with 3-4cm of water and cook away.

I started my 3 month old on fruits and vegetables such as pear, apple, pumpkin, courgette and he loves it. His clear favourite is slow cooked pears which he loves so much that he breaks out into laughter!

Slow Cooker Safety Tips

  • When purchasing a slow cooker, look for one with a removable liner. They are much easier to clean. If you have a non-removable liner, however, all is not lost! Line your slow cooker with a cooking bag and you'll have no cleanup at all. Spray the inside of the liner with cooking spray before you fill it to make cleanup easier.
  • 60C is the temperature the food needs to reach as quickly as possible. If you are at home during the cooking times, test the food temperature after four hours of cooking on LOW - the temp should be at least 60C.
  • For food safety reasons, it's a good idea to cook on HIGH for the first hour to quickly bring the temperature up to 60C. Then turn the dial to LOW and finish cooking.
  • Experts recommend you do not put frozen foods in the slow cooker. All foods should be defrosted before cooking so the food temperature can reach 60C as soon as possible. However, since none of my family members are in a high-risk group, I often cook frozen foods in the slow cooker. The informed choice is up to you.
  • Remove cooked food from the slow cooker or liner before you refrigerate the cooked food. Because the liner is made of such thick material, the food won't cool down quickly enough to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
