how much baby cereal do you feed your baby?

I give my son gerber oatmeal mixed with fruit for breakfast and the rest of his meals just baby food. So just wondered if i should add some cereal to another meal or what you all do for your babies meals?

  • My daugter is 9 months and takes cereal in every bottle. The doctor started that at 3 weeks due to severe reflux, so now if I try to mix cereal with her baby food she won't eat it. I put one formula scoop to each ounce of water in her bottles.

  • Between 9 months to a year my kiddos liked to try a few new things, so I let them if they seemed interestd. Nutritionally, breast milk or formula is the most nutrient dense food for a little one, I wouldn't try to make them have any solids if they were doing alright without.

  • My 9 month old eats the baby oatmeal at breakfast (for the iron) mixed with fruit but eats whatever we're eating for lunch and dinner.

  • My 8 month old eats cereal and fruit for b-fast, and for lunch something else usually fruit because hes picky, but for dinner its usually cream of wheat and a jar of something. he really likes cream of wheat though.

  • My daughter is 8 months old, and besides nursing still as her main source of nutrition. She is fed cereal with fruit in the am, 5 oz of juice daily, fruit or veggie for lunch (mixing them up every other day), snacks such as whole wheat bisquits, gerber yogurts, etc. and cereal and veggie at night. Its a good routine! Goodluck!
