  • Skip the oatmeal or cereal, and try just baby food. The cereal, or oatmeal may not agree with her stomach. Or maybe shes eating too much. You could try cutting down the amounts :)

  • ereal is hard to digest. It probably upsets her stomach. Feed her breastmilk/formula first then you can giver her table food. Ripe pear, avocado, butternut squash, sweet potato, etc are easy to start with. Also avoid purees, just fork mash. Allowing the baby to self feed will prevent overeating and will trigger the gag reflex less. food before 1 isfor fun and experience not nutrtition. mealshare and enjoy it together. it doesn't matter if she only eats a little.

  • Cereal is hard to digest. What do you mean she eats the whole thing? What whole thing?
