I never fed any of my babies babyfood. (Well, except for a few tries at feeding it to my firstborn, who never took to it.) I just breastfed them until they were old enough to begin some soft finger foods. Then they began self-feedings little bits of whatever the family was eating. It worked fine for us.
But, for someone who is interested in making their own babyfood and feeding that, does anyone have some good recommendations?
Also, just out of curiousity, how many of you skipped the babyfood altogether?

However a friend gave me two books by Annabel Karmel, and I liked those - We have even used a few of the toddler/ preschool recipees for the whole family. I have also liked Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. Again I never used them for purees but thought they were helpful and informative.
the the following sites that have info on just giving soft finger foods to babies that are ready.
I've used all three sites in the past and liked them The wholesome baby food site has a wholesome toddler food site as well http://www.wholesometoddlerfood.com/
That has recipees we used as DD got older.
Defintly share with her your experience and then books recommendations for homemade baby foods too - then she will be an informed mom.
I'm far more inclined to do "real" food. it is easier, and well, I am kind of a slacker
