aidan's first food, avocado!

You will be pleased to know that the first 6 month's of your baby's life is a relatively easy one for you when it comes to feeding. The only thing you will need is your boobies and/or bottle :) Then your baby will start to grow, and the time will come when you will need to think about solid foods and how to go about introducing this to your baby. I plan on avoiding processed, canned, preservative-filled baby food. Please keep in mind that current recommendations advice that babies should start solid foods at 6 months of age.

My lil Aidan will be 6 months on Thursday and until yesterday, I have exclusively breastfed him! (am planning to continue breastfeeding Aidan for at least 12 months) I chose avocado puree for Aidan's first bite. But why chose avocados over bananas or sweet potatoes?

Yummy Avocado

FYI, avocado is an excellent first food for your baby. I really like it because it is easy to make, all natural, unprocessed and loaded with healthy nutrients. Avocados are sometimes thought of as a veggie but they are actually a fruit and contain more nutrient than any other fruit. They are rich in monounsaturated fat, the 'good type' of fat which helps prevent heart disease. Not only that, it also boosts the immune system and easy to digest.

Aidan loves his first food!
