Oliver had cereal for the first time the other day! He was just a few days shy of 4 months, but our doctor said it was fine to go ahead and start him. Here are his reactions to his first bites!
The 2nd time I fed him he did much better about actually eating the cereal. He got about 10 full spoonfuls in without spitting any out.
We started with the Beech-Nut rice cereal and will try the oatmeal in a few days.
I mixed 1 Tablespoon of cereal with 2 Tablespoons of pumped breast milk and then add a bit more cereal until I got the right consistency. From my years of working daycare, I have made my fair share of cereal! The smell alone brings back memories. To start off, you want the consistency to be that of like a cheddar broccoli soup. Definitely not anywhere near solid!
My plan is to do cereal for 2 weeks and then introduce yellow fruits and vegetables (banana, squash, sweet potato...).
I will update our progress and any tips I learn along the way!
