I'm going to take a break from our regularly scheduled program to share with you my son, Brayden's first food! He turned 6 months today and we celebrated with some avocado! The first thing Gianna did was go into my cookie cutter drawer and brought me one to "make Brayden's lunch pretty." :)
We do Baby-led Weaning (BLW) with our kids, which means skipping purees and cereals and starting with age appropriate table food at 6 months or later. We had a fantastic experience with Gianna, and we are so excited to start Brayden's BLW journey! If you are interested in reading about BLW, I would suggest Gill Rapley's book, Baby-Led Weaning
The way I prepared Brayden's avocado was I quartered it lengthwise and peeled it halfway down. This gave him a handle on the slippery avocado.
