Re: Avocado

What's the purpose of freezing in cubes? Just to make it keep longer? Or do you feed it to the baby frozen in one of those mesh things?

Thanks!

I freeze into cubes then put the cubes in ziplock bags for storage. One cube is approx 1 ounce so it makes portioning easy. And you can mix easier. So you could make apples bananas berries and pears for ex then mix and match rather than feed just "fruit mix " every morning.

I don't want to mash or purée every single meal.

Avocado was my sons first food. He is almost 6 months now. I cut and slightly mashed it and set it in his tray. I let him play with it and occasionally put some in his mouth using my finger.
He now understands how to get it to his mouth on his own.
He also loves eggs, butternut squash and sweet potato.
Yum!

Re: Avocado

I just blended the avocado with enough formula (or breastmilk) to get it to a soupy consistency, it's easier for them to have their "solids" be more liquid at first, easier transition. I started my twins on avocados and they love them!

Re: Avocado

I just put it on my DD tray slightly mashed. I let her play with it and lick it off her hands. It's messy but she enjoys it.

How do you keep them from turning brown?

I always wrap with Saran Wrap, air exposure is what turns them brown. If you avoid that they will stay green much longer after being cut.

Re: Avocado

Avocado with breastmilk sounds good. I wouldn't add salt for baby because they will be exposed to so much salty food later on in life.

Re: Avocado

What about thinning avacado out with formula (instead of breast milk) and freezing?

I wish my daughter liked it. She's 9mo and I've tried a few different times
