This applies even when you are making homemade baby food. Never introduce more than 1 new food at a time when first beginning solid foods.

ALWAYS use clean hands, clean cooking utensils, preparation surface(s), pots/pans etc. when making and preparing homemade baby food. Cleanliness is a MUST when making homemade baby food.

And Finally All babies are different and will not like/tolerate the same foods or food textures. You should be willing to experiment with baby solid food for your baby. Offer your baby different foods use different ways of preparing those baby foods and be willing to have a LOT of patience.
