Does it really matter what you use to get your purees to the right consistency? My son is exclusively breastfed and I just about never pump, so it seems like such a pain to pump just to make his food. Is water perfectly fine. I have to give him water when he starts solids anyways right?
Pure water is fine to puree with. Also, your baby should get used to drinking plain water, instead of sugary juices. Use only milk or water in his sippy cup or bottle.

How to get the exclusively breastfed baby ready for solid foods:
Thanks for using my book. It’s great that you are breastfeeding! One thing you can do right now to make your little sweetie more accepting to new flavors is to eat a variety of flavors yourself. The flavors will be in your breastmilk, so eat foods like cabbage, broccoli, sweet potatoes, whole grains and beans, and all the super foods that are loaded with nutrition.
There are a few chapters of Super Baby Food that you should read in their entirety before you start feeding solid foods. The chapters about food safety and setting up the feeding area, as it says on page v in the front of the book. You may want to ask your pediatrician for a vitamin supplement for her – one with vitamin D and iron and perhaps zinc. These are important nutrients that your baby will start needing at around 6 months.
