Re: EBF and afraid of cereal

You're exactly right. If she's thriving on breastmilk alone, there's no need for other solids. Babies do not need them nutritionally until after a year. It does not have any ill affect to wait - however, it can have ill affects to start too soon. You wait till you want to start! Also, remember that just trying it doesn't mean you have to sit her down for her first meal and feed her a big ol bowl of cereal! You can let her try a few bites and see how it sits with her tummy and also see if she likes it. But, yes, I would definitely wait until at least 6mo!!
