Baby Potato Soup

This is one of Grayson's absolute favorites!!

5-6 potatoes. I used Yukon Gold, but you can use whatever kind you like. Use fewer if you have big potatoes!
1 Shallot or small onion
Fresh breast milk or formula (I haven't made it with formula, but it would work just the same.)
Cheese if your baby is ready for it

Chop the shallot and potatoes into small pieces and boil them in some water until very soft. Strain them and put them into a bowl to cool a little then mash with a potato masher (if you're not southern and don't know what a "masher" is, then I guess a fork would work too). If you need it smoother, use a food processor. Add breastmilk or formula until it is a soupy consistency. You can add cheese if you like now, or once you thaw it back out. I freeze them in ice cube trays and store in plastic bags to take out of the freezer when she's ready to eat. If your baby has tried other foods that you would like to add to the "soup", have at it!!
