Re: just a random question

Well, I think many people don't think it has an type of nutritional value and so just think of it as "empty eating." And, compared to many other solid foods, bm, and formula it doesn't. Rice cereal was encouraged as a first food b/c it is the gentlest and easiest first food for babies gut BEFORE babies are developmentally ready for food. SO, if you go with what BABY is ready for, you don't need it. If you want to shovel in food before baby can actually tolerate it, than probably something to start with. It just isn't necessary.
