Re: Alternative to rice cereal?

My baby is 4 months old. Like you, I would like to skip the rice cereal. There is oatmeal cereal and other alternatives. I have of heard from to many moms that rice cereal made their baby constipated. The oatmeal cereal have fiber in it.

Re: Alternative to rice cereal?

I was told by my pedi the same (4 months start rice) but I waited until 6 months and went with bananas, carrots, sweet potato, oatmeal cereal+breast milk, green beans (but thinking they give him gas) and squash (he doesn't care for it). I am avoiding peas because I suspect it would be the same issue as green beans. Next on the list is probably avocado. I don't really force him to eat either, I put food on his spoon and let him kind of work things out on his own. It makes a mess but it gives me time to eat IN PEACE lol

My ped recommended starting with cereal basically as practice food because it doesn't stain while baby is figuring out a spoon. As far as what to introduce when, she said just introduce one thing at a time in order to look out for allergies.

Re: Alternative to rice cereal?

I'm not much a fan of rice cereal. I just started mine on oatmeal.

But I also wonder why doctors are recommending to start them at 4 months when the WHO (world health organization) says to start them at 6 months. I tried to hold mine off as long as I could (5 and a half months)
