  • Ask the doctor. We are not doctors.

  • Ooh! Maybe we should start a site called "CafeDoctor" ?

  • I guess you could, but I wouldn't recommend getting your baby used to fruit at every feeding. You'll give him a killer sweet tooth, and you'll find it hard later to introduce foods that aren't sweet. We see questions around here all the time from moms of kids who don't want to eat anything but fruit, or worse, cookies and candy.

  • Yeah, and my great-grandmother had slaves......still doesn't make it right.

    Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you SHOULD. We are not doctors, and those of us that have been around here a while have been yelled at for giving medical advice when we're not doctors.

    Besides, your question makes no sense. Try rewording or finding a better translator site.

    When it comes to the health and/or diet of a child, the best person to ask would be the child's doctor. The doctor knows the history better than a group of strangers on a website do. The doctor knows about any family allergies. The doctor knows about so much more than this group of strangers on a website do.

  • You mean inside the bottle? I would say you should be feeding solids seperate from formula.
    Why would you mix the cereal with water? Your baby needs all of the nutrients he/she can get.
