Rilo's First Food: Avocado

A few days ago, we introduced Rilo to her first solid food.  We chose avocado.  Avocado is great because it doesn't need to be prepared, is rich in nutrients and has an interesting texture.  She had a blast playing with it.  And when she finally got it in her mouth, well, you'll see her reaction.

Rilo loves taking drinks from cups, water bottles and sippy cups.  She holds it with her two hands and lifts it to take a sip.  Very cute.

And here she goes with the avocado.  We are doing Baby Led Weaning, which essentially means she is running the show.  She gets to feed herself and explore the new world of food.  I really like it because I really believe kids learn best when they explore on their own (with supervision of course).

It's gotten better each time we've fed her!  Next up, green beans and sweet potato!

  1. awesome! I always did avocado too for a first food. Forget that rice cereal... Jack turns 2 in 2 weeks, and he's still hooked on it. He can put away an entire bowl of guacamole.
