Feeding your little one avocado doesn't require you to steam, boil or even blend the fruit to puree state.
What I did was.....
1. Cut the avocado fruit into half.
2. Use a baby spoon to scrap out small amount of the 'meat' to feed your baby.
For some parents, they prefer this method below.
1. Peel and de-pit the avocado.
2. Mash the avocado fruit with a masher or spoon. **
** or you may blend the fruit with a blender.
I personally think that the second method requires more effort and time spending on mashing the avocado to purify it or even blending also requires you to do washing on the equipment later.
Don't worry if your little one can't finish his/her avocado as this is common because they are still learning to accept new food other than milk. Also, their main source of nutrients still come from milk and not these solids food. Do remember NOT to feed the leftover food to your babies as it might have got contaminated.
To preserve the halved unused avocado, you may store it properly in a container and don't forget to add in lemon to prevent it from turning brown!
On side note, if you're not an expert at choosing avocado (like me, lol!) you might want to leave your avocados untouched for 3-4 days before feeding your little one just to make sure it has ripen. From what I know, the price for avocado is roughly B$1.90 to $2.10 each and can be found in local supermarkets such as Hua Ho, Supasave, Utama Grand, Jaya Hypermart and etc.
