mixing water w/rice cereal

Is it okay to mix my baby's cereal (rice & oatmeal) with water at this point? She is 7 months old, & I have been using breast milk up until now.

  • Breast milk is better cause it has more calories and nutrients without all the stuff that's in our water.

  • It's okay, but don't be surprised if she doesn't take it. She's used to the taste of it mixed with breastmilk.
