Our LO turns 6 mo in three days and we're going to start offering food next weekend using a baby led approach.
It looks like avocado and banana are both good choices as first foods. I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation or preference of one or the other as the first solid to offer?
Side note: I'm pretty excited to watch LO put something in his mouth that actually has flavor and see how he reacts. When I talk to the grandparents about starting solids I've been trying to de-emphasize the eating and focus on the process of exploration and learning. I'm telling the grandparents they are invited to come over to watch the first "put food in his hair and throw it on the ground" event to hopefully lessen some of their eagerness to see LO eat.
