who DID NOT give their baby rice cereal?

I am exclusively breastfeeding my dd, and we are about to start her on solids.  But I don't want to have to pump every time I give her rice or oatmeal cereal.  So I'm trying to explore the other options out there for her first feedings.  What did you give to your baby when starting solids?

lol i didnt do the rice cereal with ds, he hated it.

i went straight to veggies. green beans.  




I wear no uniforms, no blues or army greens. But I am in the military in the ranks rarely seen I have no rank upon my shoulders, salutes I do not give. But the military world is the place where I live. I'm not in the chain of command, orders I do not get. But my husband is the one who does, this I cannot forget. I'm not the one who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line. But my job is just as tough. I'm the one that's left behind. My husband is a patriot, a brave and prideful man, And the call to serve his country, not all can understand. Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free. My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me. I love the man I married. Patriotism is his life. But I stand among the silent ranks known as the military wife.

You don't have to give cereal.. its just a guideline, you can go stright to baby foods, start with apples or pears or squash.

And I just mixed my kids food with water, i never pumped and mixed with that.

We did the rice cereal with breast milk! But we had to start doing it at 2 weeks old because DS couldn't hold down just breast milk he had to have something solid first! Sorry no help!

I didnt do the rice either. My daughter would not take it. She did like the oatmeal but I used formula.
