After a few days of sweet potatoes, we introduced one of my favorite foods- avocados!
Avocados make a great first food for a number of health reasons, but my favorite reason is that they are SO EASY!
I'm a little lazy when it comes to baby food. I'm not really a "making my own baby food" kinda mom. To be honest, it's just a little more pre-planning than I'm up to.
Typically, I don't think about feeding the baby until it's time to feed the baby- so, as long as I have a ripe avocado on hand, I have instant baby food!!
I was worried that he was getting a little constipated after several days of avocado, so I also wanted to introduce pears. There weren't any organic pears at Whole Foods and I no longer live close to my favorite "Healthy Food Store," so I bought a few jars of Earth's Best pears.
Today the baby ate one meal which wasn't until 4:30 (busy day!) and it was avocado (raw, mashed, cold) and pears (about 1/3 jar). (FYI notice the seed still in the avocado? If you want to keep the avocado for a few days keep the seed it and it will keep it from getting brown.)
Do you make your own baby food? What do you like/ not like about it? What are your favorite quick and easy "go to" foods for babies?
