Re: So i started cereal can i stop??

They do know when they are ready! lol We started with oatmeal first, but it's still a "powder to solid". My son prefers oatmeal to rice for sure.

Except for my first, my lo's have always done fruit/veggie first. They started between 4 & 6 mos. # 2 ate avacados first, #3 ate applesauce & #4 just started w/ sweet potatoes. No troubles!!

I am planning to start with avacado with my LO. They say the fat is good for breastfed babies!

We also started with avocado for my son. He hated it though.

You should be able to find a recipe on how to make your own rice/oatmeal cereal for baby now that there are so many more health contentious mom's out there.

Re: So i started cereal can i stop??

I tried to make some oatmeal for him last night. I put it in my food chopper and blended it to a powder, but it was still pretty chunky after i added to water. It had alot of texture, so i am not sure what to do to make it not so oatmealy??? He liked it though, but kept trying to chew it when he was eating. I guess that is good though because he was trying to chew(he doesnt have teeth I guess we will just keep trying!! Thanks everyone!!

Re: So i started cereal can i stop??

We didn't start solids until a week shy of 6 months and even then it was oatmeal only for a few weeks, but I don't know why they would say cereals are okay but fruits and veggies are not. Not telling you to ignore your Ped's advice, but I've only ever heard of the 4 month VS 6 month debate in starting solids in general. When we did go past oatmeal, we went with veggies first, then fruits, from most bland/least sweet to highest fat/flavor/natural sugar. I don't really know if order makes any impact... my son will eat ANYTHING we give him so far (just over 8 months now).

Yes you can stop the cereal.
here are some good articles.

There has been some controversy in the news about giving rice cereal to babies at all.

Re: So i started cereal can i stop??

If he's ready to digest cereal, seems he could digest fruits/veggies as well

My son started on cereal, and my daughter did as well, but both transitioned to fruits/veggies very quickly. My daughter actually never eats cereal now. Unless I make oatmeal. I like the other idea of making rice and then putting it in the food processor. That would probably be super easy and just like rice cereal.
