I dont think applesauce is a good idea for a 3.5 month old. Someone correct me if im wrong but I believe if you take probitics it will get transferred to her. Also the brewers yeast in beer can upset babies. Rice cereal use to be the starting food. A lot of moms now avoid it. It really doesnt have any nutritional value.
I think I would rather mix cereal with breastmilk and see if she would take it that way. Would barley or oatmeal be better for her than rice cereal? I only fed her half of a gerber stage one applesauce tonight and she didn't finish it all. I don't think I'm going to drink anymore beer. I really don't care for it and I would rather just make some barley to eat.
