My LO eats “oatmeal” every morning for breakfast. Gerber cereal made with his formula and a spoon or two of a puréed fruit. He absolutely loves it and it’s introducing him to a difficult texture of food.
I also used cereal in his formula when he had colic around 2 months old but discontinued as soon as his colic cleared.
I used regular oats and blended it down to powder. That's how she's been getting oatmeal when she hasn't gone in a few days . Otherwise I make her puree and that's what she's been getting
I've been using both purees and cereals. Just basic Gerber or Kroger brand for both. She loves the options. We did start with single fruit/veggie options (like just apple, peas or carrot) and now we're moving to 2 food mixes (like apple+prune, apple+sweet potato, etc)
I made my own. But only for the first couple days then started vegetable purees
Sounds like you’re doing the right thing!
@Jeni I did give my baby some banana as soon as he turned 4 months but he kinda choked so I got scared and I stopped. But pediatrician said to give him some cereal to see if it’ll help his poop being so watery. But after this week of cereal I will start with purées since he turned 5 months on the 14th. Just waiting for him to be able to fit up by himself but I think he should he will be good
Skipped cereal and went to purées. Couldn’t see the point of cereal… Born April 4th, started purées a bit before 5 months. She ate scrambled eggs this morning. I mean, just a smidge - but she did it herself and loved it!
