Re: What brand rice cereal did you start on?

I didn't do any baby cereals for Noah. It offers them no nutritional benefit and it's really not that great of a "learning" food for them IMO. It just not a great first food in general for their little systems. We took a more BLW approach with Noah, did very little purees and "goopy" stuff with him and usually he ate what we ate, just prepared for him.

As far as food allergies go, I read studies recently saying their was no increase of food allergy risks if certain "high allergy" foods were started between 4-6 months of age...starting them does not increase risk of food allergies. However, if there was a family history of food allergies not to introduce the foods until 6 months or later.
