Do you need to wait till bananas are super ripe (all brown and spotted) before feeding it to baby?

What's the reason? Is it just so that it's easier to mush up?

  • eew no. But I did find that if I froze the banana's (I would peel them and cut them into thirds and just trhow in a frezer bad - they don't get brown)... if I froze them the mashed up much better than fresh after they were thawed

  • Yes, softer. Also, don't freak if you happen to notice what looks like black "string" in the baby's stool after eating banannas! This happens, and is normal, and part of the bananna! I freaked the first time I saw it in my son's diaper; I thought for sure he had worms, but it was just the bananna!

  • Theyre much more sweeter and softer when they get "freckles". Better tasting in my opinion
