Re: Do I need to give him cereal?
nope. Cereal is completely unnecessary.
It was created because formula used to be incomplete. Now if you are breastfeeding, you can just eat more iron yourself or if you are using formula, the formula is complete enough to skip cereals.
If you are interested in using up what you have (that doesn't break him out), you can mix sparingly in your other foods.
