Re: What options to mix with cereal? Ancient Grain cereal suggestions?
I bought Earth's Best organic rice cereal to mix in with breastmilk around 5 months (supposed to help with spitting up). My little girl is almost 7 months now, and she's eaten all sorts of homemade baby food (including yogurt). Once I started with cereal, I added fruit right away (banana, applesauce, apricots, and mango). You can do the same thing with yogurt (My girl LOVES avocado and yogurt, and banana and yogurt). I also do different combinations - rice cereal (or pureed cooked brown rice) with applesauce and yogurt. I have an extra stash of dry cereal in the diaper bag, and if I don't have any breastmilk to mix in with it, I sometimes use the diluted applejuice in her sippy cup and she loves it. You can really try mixing anything with cereal to give it a familiar taste- sweet potato is another winner. Good luck!
