8 mo dd has had sweet potatoes before that I've made and jarred stuff and had no problems. The latest batch of sweet potatoes I made at home, made her vomit. No diarrhea. And really vomit - everything she'd eaten came up for several hours. The first time it happened I didn't make the connection - she ate 3 cubes of it and puked the entire night. I thought it was a virus or something. A week later, she just ate a few teaspoons (thankfully she wasn't very hungry) and puked 3 times.<br><br>
My question is about my food prep -<br>
I steamed them in their skins for about 40-50mins (longer than usual cause I forgot about them).<br>
Should I have peeled them first? I mean I thought perhaps bacteria could be on the skin?<br><br>
I'm very careful about washing my icecube trays in hot soapy water. Other than the steamer I used, I used a spoon clean out of the dishwasher. I'm at a loss at how this could have happened.<br><br>
Anyone heard of bad batches of sweet potatoes? I bought the organic ones from Whole Foods. I've made apples, pears, quinoa without any problems.

Maybe there was something on the skin that didn't get washed off? Did you scrub then really well? Poor thing! So good you realized what it was!
