I'd like to make some popsicles for my 7.5 month old, now that the weather is getting hot. I think it'd help her with her teething too. But is she still too young?
I was thinking of just pureing peaches with yogourt, or something like that. Anyone have a good recipe?
My babies started to enjoy breastmilk popsicles before they even started solids, as soon as they could sit with support. They loved it. They never really ATE much of it-- a lot wound up in hair and on clothing. But it was tons of fun. Put the high chair outside in the yard, to minimize cleanup.
ok so what keeps a chunk from sliding down their throat and them chocking?? Sorry to be the bummer here but that was my initial thought. I would love to give her a popsicle but thought there was no way it could be safe.
I loved that post about bananas and avocadoes, as these are the only 2 foods she'll eat (well, yesterday, we had some success with cauliflower, so there's hope )
I had heard of breastmilk popsicles, but though it would be super messy. I guess it is and that's the fun!

Even if a pieces goes down, though, if you puree ahead of time, the pieces will melt quickly enough that it won't clog the trachea, won't it? My kids gagged sometimes, but never really choked.
I like the mesh bag idea...I have one of those and might try that with my LO!

Heck, I've been eyeing up these purees and thinking that later on I'll have to remember to do this for smoothies of my own!

i have one of those chew bags with the handles. can't think of the name right now. it's got a mesh bag with a handle that unscrews. i pop in a frozen chunk of puree, screw on the lid, and my daughter goes to town gnawing on it. it's great and i don't have to worry about her choking!
