This was Marion’s first serious week on real food. We’d fooled around a little bit before with mushed up banana on our fingers and some oatmeal, but we went hard core with the avocado this week.
And it’s a success! She really loves it and seems to look forward to dinner time now.
We have pictures, but won’t gross you out with food smeared all over her face. It’s truly only something parents can stomach 🙂
Just because I found it hard to find exact “recipes” and I’m one who needs exact measurements, we pureed one medium Haas avocado with 5 oz of formula to get the right consistency. It’s really liquid at first, but thickens up a bit after freezing. There were a few tiny bits of solid avocado left in the mix, and when I came across them while feeding, I’d just mash them up with her spoon and they didn’t seem to bother her at all.
Next week, we’re adding in sweet potatoes (I think that’s what we decided on), thickening the avocado mixture (4 oz of formula) and letting her play more with slices of avocado and frozen bananas. Fun times!
