Avacados-a baby's first food

Not all people would enjoy reading an entry entirely based on babies eating mashed up, slimy food. But is my new journey right now with my 6 month old baby. So, I tried powdered rice cereal first mixed with apple juice. He liked that for the first two days. Then I tried some homemade applesauce. That was a no go. I am guessing it was too sour. Poor baby. Then I tried Gerber baby food applesauce, peaches and pears. Again, it was not liked. After trying several new items, he had learned the technique of batting the spoon away and barring the door to his mouth with his tongue. That was too funny, but I felt sorry for him. Back to the drawing board...bananas maybe? No, not really. Batting the spoon away became a game and "No, no" has now been a learned comment from Mommy. He is such a good boy. He listens so well. Tonight I tried avocado, mashed up really well. He seemed to like it better, even though bananas were in it too. The avocado being a first food for babies is something I read on the following website.
Now I am excited to try it again. So, for those looking for a good beginner baby food...hope this works for you too. No more sour faces and healthy baby here we come!!
