I pureed avacado for my 6mo old, and I put it in the freezer, will it get brown in there? And would it be okay to warm it up before I give it to her? I usually just feed it to her from the skin but I had so much of it I didn't want it to go bad. Also, is avacado binding? She's been having hard poops lately, just wondering because I stopped the rice cereal.

I would still be feeding her the rice for fiber. I would mix the 2 together.

I've been giving her the oatmeal cereal instead. Is it just as good as rice?

Ya oatmeal is still fiber. How long has she been eating all these foods? I know when I introduced a new food to my daughter she got a bit constipated but in a couple of days would start going again.

She's been eating cereal and food for about a month and a half but only for about a week I've been giving the cereal twice a day.

I have a book with good foods to freeze and avacodo is not one of them. But with that said.



What you can do is slice it in strips dip it in lime or lemon juice before freezing or putting it in the fridge. The juice stops the Browning process.



Works for bananas as well.

They say avocados don't cause constipation but rice cereals will. But it don't mean that it can't Kwim?
