Re: Avocado

This was our first solid-- I pureed it in a food processor (didn't need liquid), glopped it on a waxed-paper lined cookie sheet and covered with plastic wrap and froze it for a couple of hours. Then, I transferred the glops to a freezer bag for storage. Works great, and I got a month's worth out of a few avocados and a few minutes of work! I thaw it overnight and serve it with a spoon.

Re: Avocado

You can put it in a blender/food processor. I usually just mash it with a fork. My sons favorite!

What a great idea! I always end up throwing half of it away b/c i can't jsut eat straight avocado and he doesn't eat a lot of it.

Re: Avocado

My son started feeding himself guacamole, applesauce and rice at four months and is now a happily self feeding nine month old. My doc gave me the go ahead because he was sufficienctly developed to swallow at that age. he still nurses daily but eats just about everything we do now. If they're ready to try foods, just mash it up and let them try some. Every baby is different and every baby has their own schedule. if they're grabbing for your food and getting it into their mouth and repeating the cycle, sitting on their own, they're ready!
have fun trying new foods! we did avocado, applesauce, green beans, peas, bananas first.

Re: Avocado

I used a blender and added a little water to make a smooth puree. Then I froze the extra into ice cube trays. I go through so many avocados! They are my son's favorite!

Re: Avocado

I cubed them and rolled them in flax meal so it's easier to pick up (less slimy--works great with bananas too)

Love this!!!! My 12 month old refuses to pick them up.

My phone thinks it smarter than me. Please pardon any mistakes.

Re: Avocado

I either give it in slices (BLW) or mash it in yogurt, put it on the spoon, and hand it to my baby to put in his mouth. Both my babies LOVE avocado. If you mash it in yogurt, you can also add nutritional yeast or fortified cereal if you want.
