hey. i went to my son's 4 month visit at the dr a few weeks ago and the dr said i could start giving rice cereal. i told him i was not interested in giving cereal, that we had done that with our older son and it did not seem valuable. i started to mention BLS but did not go too into detail.
the dr seemed to not really be listening , just said that if i didnt want to start now that was ok. i'm not a big fan of the dr...
when i go back for the 5 moth visit i am sure he is going to ask if we started and maybe push it again.
so i just want to know my stuff when i talk to him, not sound flaky. anyone able to give me some good details about rice cereal?
i have read supporters of cereals say something about iron level... is this true? what are better foods to make sure the baby has enough iron than if that is the case?
thanks for the support!
