Carrots are so fun to deal with your baby! Really all those orange-colored vegetables and are. They are brightly colored and sweet enough for those taste buds baby!
As mentioned in my peas baby food Post, carrots, along with all prepared vegetables for the baby should be served with a fat used to help digestion and absorption carrot nutrients. I like to add a little coconut oil. real butter or olive oil also works. And do not be afraid of a pinch of sea salt and baby will benefit from the minerals!
orange vegetables like carrots (also squash or sweet potatoes) need to be fed a little more extended than other vegetables. Their small livers need some time to learn how to convert carotenoids into vitamin A. If small nose or your baby’s skin will start looking yellow / orange just back a bit. I do not do more than twice a week with orange vegetables when you start out. Perhaps closer to a year old I do not worry me much. And that schedule just learned through trial and error. With my first two babies I noticed the little orange nose if they got orange vegetables every day color. So until they are a little closer to 1 year, I just made a couple of times per week of orange vegetables.
