But, do you all make your own baby food fresh? Me and db want to.

|Babies need breastmilk as their primary source of nutrition for at least the first year or better. Filling baby's tummy with puree'd green beans and squash is nothing like filling her belly with wholesome breastmilk.
I don't know of any other mammal that purees their baby's food. Dogs don't chew up dog food and spoon feed their pups. Cats don't chew up cat food and spoon feed their kittens, etc. Think about it.
And no matter what you believe--whether it's Jesus, the cavemen, the big bang theory, etc--at some point humans had the bare neccessities to live on. Did the cavemen puree food for their babies with a processor? Did Mary puree Jesus' food? I highly, highly doubt it. I'm sure they nursed until the babies had enough teeth to eat by themselves. That's the way I see it now, but I didn't see it like that until after I started purees with dd.

As with any other parenting decision, there is no right or wrong answer. It's whatever you are comfortable with after you've looked at the information available GL with your research and decision, OP!
I don't do babyfood at all. Just give real food.
