I was going to give my daughter avacadoes for the first time; However, I know that avacadoes get brown and gross if they're not used right away. Is there any way to preserve them, or do you have to mash and feed what you can, and dispose of the rest? Is there any way to freeze it?
Also, should you feed it as a new food for 3 days, or is it good to go? At 9 months, do you really need to 'introduce' everything as much?
I buy frozen avocados. They freeze well, for baby food. Just buy em, cut em and freeze em. When it is time to feed em, just get a bit out, dethaw and mash.
My doc says 3days to test food. The standard is 3-7 days. Some people argue that 3days is tooshort to see if there is a reaction, some say that 7 days is too long, because you can induce an allergy or sensitivity with too much of the same food every day.
I do 3-4, I think 5 days is optimal.
My doctor (and I) think that it IS still important to introduce EVERYTHING. If you don't and baby ends up with a food allergy or senstivity, it can be really hard to find the culprit. THEN to find out, you have to see a food allergist for testing and probably RE-introduce EVERYTHING, at 4-7 or whatever age you notice the problem. Some senstivities may be something as "simple" as hyperactivity, that can be avoided.
Some of the food that babies get later, are fairly high on the allergy risk chart. Examples are: Wheat, corn, beef, pork, peanut butter, soy, oranges and several others.
Jewelry for yourself, or for a friend. Breastfeeding aides, beautiful bracelets, earings and more.
Okay, so you mean you buy avacadoes, cut them THEN freeze them? Your post said that you buy frozen avacadoes, but I've never seen them at our stores already frozen. Hum, maybe I'm missing them?
Also, with the introducing... when can you 'not' do it. I mean, I'm confused with the whole, starting to introduce solids then, because everything is SO different, especially when you get to stage 3's and there are spaghetti's and stuff, then you've got breads and cereals and "people" food, if you just feed a few bits of table food/finger foods, how are you supossed to introduce that?
Thanks so much in advance, I'm going nutso here... so many questions.
