  • no cereal. Skip it and go to veggies.

  • None. They are all exceedingly difficult to digest and are notorious constipators.
    Go direct to table food fruits and veggies. check out baby led solids

  • And of course your gonna get a lecture......not from me though.....I always started with rice cereal but did oatmeal a few months later and I never had any trouble with either of my children because of it. And no constipation.

  • I offer cereals to kids at 6 mos to rule out allergies while I still can see what they are exposed to...I went for the Earth Best Organics rice first (smells so good), then started the other grains one at a time leaving almost a month between to watch and see if anything changed.

    I had/have funky feeders so meals were as fun and yummy as I could make them. I waited for veggies until they had good mouth control and could handle them just steamed and mashed or tiny cut..some kids need to figure it all out on certain textures before handling certain flavors....

  • If you want to start with cereal do rice. Its easier to digest than patmeal. As far as brands im not sure. I would personally skip cereals and go to veggies :)

  • They're much of a muchness, really. And honestly, not the best choice for a starter food as they can constipate.

  • None. They were invented as an iron supplement before formula had iron. Now formula has iron and babies don't need cereal.
