Re: What brand rice cereal did you start on?

I think we did pinto beans at about 9 months old. We did try other foods earlier but he just wasn't interested in them. At 11 months he loves fruits, Veges, beans, hummis, quinoa, rice. He has never had rice cereal or oatmeal. He does eat Kix and cheerios. He mostly prefers foods he can pick up on his own verses a food he has to be fed.

I also season my kiddos food from the start. Who likes to eat unseasoned food? Not me. My lo has had chili seasoning on fruit. He loves it and has had no problems digesting it.

Gerber organic made my baby throw up for mysterious reasons. We use Earth's best organic and love it.

I think there was a thread on here about arsenic in rice products. You may want to check that out before you choose a brand.

I never fed my kids rice cereal when they turned around five to six months. They loved eating Gerber, preferably the carrot, peach and squash flavor. On their first year of age, they started eating solid foods like rice and soft vegetables.

started with gerber, however one of my twins didn't like it so we got the banana/mixed fruit flavored rice cereal and they both seem to like that better

we never did cereal either, or purees for that matter. we did baby led weaning, starting at about 6 months. his first food was steamed sweet potato "fries". big pieces he could pick up and gnaw on himself

Happy Bellies Super Cereal. Brown rice and it has pre and probiotics. Helps a ton w/ her reflux and gas and hasn't constipated her at all. I actually have to add it to her bottles, and she gets ~3T a day and hasn't had any issues.... and her formula stays down!

If you want to start on something I would do oatmeal. Baby oatmeal that is. It's more nutritionally sound than rice cereal.
OR you could make your own with brown rice, which is also better than white rice cereal powder.
I used cereal with my daughter, My son was NOT a fan so we just skipped it and started him on fruits and veggies first.
