Help making baby food... MunchkinWrangler 4 kids; Rīga, Latvia 46778 posts

So I have decided to start LO's journey into eating solids with avocado. I want to make a few tupperware dishes of it for him to bring to daycare.. but I was wondering if I could add lemon juice so that it won't get nasty and brown? Same goes for bananas...



If so... how much is necessary?



Also... can I mix breastmilk and rice cereal with the avocado? Is the breastmilk still okay for 6 days in the fridge when it's mixed with food.. or should I just do water to mix it?

I wouldn't leave homemade baby food for 6 days in the fridge, just bring fresh every day.

I don't trust any food for 6 days. I would make fresh every day. At the very least, not longer than 3 days.

Put it in ice cube trays and freeze it, then pop one or two out every day so they can defrost it for him. Idk anything about the other questions though.

I wasn't going to keep it for 6 days in the fridge, I just thougt BM was good for 6 days and wondered if that rule still applied if mixed with food or if you have to feed it immediately. Considering how much extra veggies I have at dinner I may be able to blend up enough for a couple days- that's why I ask.
