I've been feeding Ryland baby cereal for about a month now. He's 5 months old. He has had rice and oatmeal. He is tolerating both fine. I know some pediatricians recommend the rice cereal as a good source of iron and a good starter cereal since it's the one least likely to cause an allergic reaction. Now that I know that Ryland is not allergic to either one, which do I continue to feed him? Do I just switch back and forth between the two to give him a variety? What kind of cereal do you feed your babies?

I'm pretty sure you can use any type of cereal now, since he did well with rice.

I use rice for now, and when I use it up I think I'll try oatmeal or the kind with fruit.

I only give Liam barley cereal--rice and oatmeal bind him up and if there's one thing he doesn't need is more things binding him up.

I give Blaise both cereal & oatmeal. I usually give him cereal for his night bottle, and I give him oatmeal for breakfast. And then he eats baby food the rest of the day.

I don't do rice anymore, Donovan gets oatmeal instead of rice in the mornings because it has a tiny bit of fiber in it and we have had constipation issues in the past.

we actually started off with oatmeal and now alternate between that and mixed cereal. i'll mash bananas or mix pear puree in with her cereals. i'm gonna introduce more fruits to her this way before giving them to her straight.

I started cohen on rice, when the box was done went to barley, then to oatmeal and then to wheat. once i had tried those did mixed cereal and then i started to do the ones with fruits in them if he had already been allergy tested for the fruit. now i just give him whatever. if there is no fruit in the cereal i mix in some from a baby jar cause he wont eat it plain anymore.

Thank you Rawisner for the Siggy!
