baby girls first food
Avocado is a perfect first food! It is packed full of nutrients and healthy fats that are great for a babies brain development. Bonus: This high calorie food helps my little one sleep the night!
- Breastmilk or Formula as needed
- Cut avocado in half, scoop out 1 Tbsp from the flesh and mash!
- Mix in 1/2 ounce breastmilk or formula for a thinner consistency.
- To store avocado, put it back together so it appears whole. Place in air tight container and refrigerate.
I have been giving my daughter avocado for a few days now, and it is still fresh!
How to pick an avocado: A ripe avocado has a dark green color. When you press on it, you want it to have a little give, but you do not want it to be squishy. (An avocado is similar to a banana with how it ripens.)
When to introduce more foods: Offer one new food to your child every 4-7 days. This is to ensure there is no negative reaction to the food. And yes, it can take four days to know if a food will irritate your little one.
Any guesses what food I will give her next?
