When did you start introducing oatmeal?

How did you do it? also when did you give your LO juice for the first time?

  • Right before 6 months for us--around 5 1/2 months. I really wanted to wait for 6 months to start any solids, but my DS was born 2 weeks after his due date. He's always seemed older to me. LOL I waited until he was 6 months to introduce anything besides cereal though. Our ped said 4-6 months was ok, but I wanted to wait a little longer. They don't usually have enough enzymes to properly digest solids before 4-6 months, that's why many prefer to wait the full 6 months.

  • Oatmeal was about 5 months because my dd didn't handle rice cereal very well at all. Juice was around the same time, but was and is only for constipation.

  • I introduced oatmeal right after rice cereal around 6 months. He seemed to like it better mixed with formula (I did breastfeed for a while but had to give up), so maybe try mixing it with expressed milk or formula. I've also added fruits and veggies to oatmeal after he was introduced to a lot of different foods. I think juice was somewhere around 8 months for us, and I watered it down a bit (still do).
