Don't bother with purees- and please skip the rice cereal- it is void of any nutrition, and taste!

instead of mushing up the avocado, make it into slices or cubes- you can also just hand her half a banana (or set it on her tray). Let her play with it, and experiment- and don't worry about how much she actually eats- BM is her main source of food right now!

She may gag on stuff she gets in her mouth- don't be too quick to "help" wait a second- they need to learn how far back to let it get- it may give you a start and you think they are choking- but almost always, they are just gagging because it got a little too far back, and will work it out themselves- watch some videos on youtube of BLW- gagging vs. choking :-)
