ALmost 6 months and starting solids

Anyone have ideas on the best way to incorporate avocados in a babies diet when they are young? They brown easily but I guess Im just not great at picking the softest kids and mashing it enough and adding enough wetness because there are still chunks in it and Im worried my baby will choke. So far I've tried giving one kind of food at a time.

I gave my little guy slices of avocado whole. They can mash it with their gums, they wont choke. At least not the way youre thinking. They may gag before they get the hang of it but it teaches them to "chew" before swallowing. But if you dont want to do that you could always put it in the blender.

So it doesnt get stuck in their throat? She is only barely 6 months now and has only had stage 1 food still.

My little dude is 7 mos tomorrow and eats whole cooked carrots, apples, watermelon, celery, avocado...we slowed down his solids because it was making his tummy upset but never had a choking issue. Google Baby Led Weaning or search it on here. Its not for everyone, but we love it.

This is funny, but my son did not like avocados when I smashed them up and offered them n a spoon. However, when he saw me eating avocado slices with lime and salt he grabbed one and loved it! Gobbled them right up! Every baby is different!

We just did pureed avocados with a touch of water. My LO hated them. After the second day of trying relentlessly trying to get him to swallow some instead of gag I decided to introduce something different instead. We have done oatmeal, rice, and multigrain cereal, carrots, avocado and now peas.

We just give it straight. Our baby mashes the avocados with her gums. I wouldn't give her huge chunks so she doesn't choke.
