Re: Which cereal?

Earth's Best whole grain rice cereal
We're using this. Got some NIB FFS on here!

Really, if you're mixing it w/ BM and just using it to intro. feeding, it's not going to be filler and you're getting all your calories/vitamins from the BM. (It's not as if spoonfuls are actually getting into their mouths!)

Starting w/ rice cereal is suggested just because of it's digestability and low incidence of food allergies. Then, 4d later you can make a switch to a veggie (like PP said, avocado is a good one to start with)...and keep trying new ones every few days (to make sure there's no allergic reaction.) Either way, BM (or formula) continues to be the main source of nourishment.

(That cereal comes from Whole Foods for sure. Where else? I don't know.)
