    The Haas avacados work really well for us. We get the large ones and make sure they are very soft. Then I mash it with a fork and mash a small piece of banana with it.

    Re: Boppy on Plane???

    I just flew southwest yesterday but I didn't talke my boppy pillow. You get one carry on and one small carry on (like a purse). So, I think they would consider a boppy a "carry on".
