I've only ever used instant cereal as a thickener, but I am planning on making my own cereal when I start my son on it. I am not sure if homemade oatmeal or rice cereals work the same as a thickener or not. I've read that a lot of mommies keep instant on hand to use as thickener so I was just wondering if this is an issue.
I won't have to worry about it for a while; I still haven't introduced foods yet, and plan on using avocado first which won't need thickening. We will try cereal before any other foods that need thickened, like carrots. I am just curious, because I know there are mommies here who make their own cereals and mommies that use both boxed and homemade

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!
I cant answer your ? about home made being the same as boxed.....I have only used boxed cereals for Katie....
one thing I have noticed though.....Gerber IMO, is a lot smoother than Beechnut, Katie likes it MUCH better. we buy the oatmeal in the canister.
