Re: Canning baby food...

Any vegetables besides tomatoes would have to be pressure canned in a 
pressure canner--a normal pressure cooker will not work (can't maintain 
pressure exact enough to guarantee safety).  I rather think that the 
expense of a pressure canner (upwards of $80) and the time it takes would 
not be worth it to do the small sized jars suitable for baby foods.

I personally would stick to freezing.
