    Default Favorite rice cereal brands?

    I will start to give my baby rice cereal and I am overwhelmed by the choices and reviews online. It seems everyone finds fault with one or another brand! I was wondering what your favorite brands are. I would like something with as little extra ingredients as possible! (My baby has soy, dairy, gluten and nut sensitivities).

    Thanks!

    You don't have to give rice cereal at all. Check out http://www.drgreene.com/whiteout

    that rice cereal isn't necessary. Baby led solids www.rapleyweaning.com is pretty darn awesome- baby eats "real foods"- what you or I would eat, and teaches to feed themselves.

    Some moms have done it with babies with allergies. I don't have any experience there.

    I did it with both of my kiddos- the one with allergies and the one without. It makes things a lot easier, imo.

    Davis never ate at school, with his allergies I was too afraid to open the door to any solids when I wasn't personally there. Nora was 9 mos by the time she went to DC so they were fine giving her the same food they were giving to the older kids.

    I didn't have the DCP provide solids until they were essentially feeding themselves, and then we talked about what they could and could not have, and basically, by then, they were eating everything in sight anyway
