Can I give pear to my 6 month old?
When can babies eat pears? Raw pear can be a choking hazard because the fruit is slippery and firm. That said, if you steam or cook pears until they are soft, or slice them very thinly, pears may be introduced as soon as your baby is ready to start solids, which is generally around 6 months old.
How do you cut a 1 year old pear?

- Add the apple fingers and cook for a further 2 minutes until fruit has softened (but not collapsed).
How do you steam pears for babies in the microwave?
Place prepared pear quarters in a microwave-safe dish. Add ¼ cup water and cover tightly, allowing a corner to vent. Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes and stir pears. Re-cover and cook for 3 to 6 minutes, or until tender.
How do you ripen a pear?
Placing the pears in a brown paper bag keeps ethylene close to the fruit and speeds up ripening. Any bag would work, but paper is preferred over plastic as it allows the fruit to breathe. Another way to ripen pears is to place them next to fruits like bananas, avocados, or apples (perhaps in a fruit bowl).
How do you cook pears for Blw?
A soft pear chopped and tossed into a blender or food processor will blend easy. A little liquid or breastmilk can be added if you need to thin it out. If the pear is a bit firm, chop into chunks then steam for 4-8 minutes, depending on the pear before blending. Practice BLW with purees by offering preloaded spoons!
