    Both my kids' first food was avocado. After that, sweet potato, pumpkin etc. I skipped rice cereal altogether.

    It's not uncle toby's at the moment- nice rolled oats from organic shop.But have used Toby's before

    I never mix purees with formula.

    I've got a delicious blend of quinoa, banana and blueberry going on. It's so good I eat it myself sometimes. I add some formula to give it a smoother consistency for DD.

    I pretty much add quinoa to every purée combo. As pp have mentioned. It is packed full of nutrients.

    Some bubs find it harder to digest at a young age so if they're gassy or sore then hold off for a while longer.

    My health nurse told me to just whizz whatever I was eating. My 4 month old eats everything from steak to fish to fruit and veg in mushy form. Lol. She is a guts ache though. We use rice cereal for thickening.

    Oh right...what do you use to do that? I might have to get a bamix stick blender.

    I didn't think babies that young were meant to have meat? I thought meat was from 6m onwards.

    I have not mixed my purées with breastmilk or formula. he seems to be going ok with the pumpkin purée I made. he gagged a bit on the mashed avo but I think that's because it wasn't mashed up enough.

    I think as long as long as it's fine like pureed otherwise it would be a choking risk.
