My daughter is 3 months old she sleeps pretty good only waking once at night...so that's not why I want to start her on cereal. I offered her rice cereal way thin once and she seemed to get the hang of the spoon and everything. She shows intrest in food whenever anyone around her is eating.
I have heard of some starting with whole wheat cereal... should I just stick to rice?Once a day? Morning or night? thanx : )

Honestly, that is way to young. The gut isn't really that mature at that age, they can't sit up, and haven't even lost the tongue thrust reflex which is designed to push solid foods OUT of the mouth. If you have to puree foods in order to bypass those failsafes, its way too early. KWIM? Cereal is also a marketing ploy. It is overloaded with iron which is constipating, is hard to digest which can cause stomach upsets, and it tastes horrible. Save money! Wait until the baby is at least six months old (as recommended by the WHO) especially if you breastfeed. Remember food before one is for experience only, not nutrition. All nutrition should come from breastmilk or formula. If you wait for the right development you can just go to table foods with no muss and no waste! http://www.borstvoeding.com/voedselintroductie/schema/engels.html
