ok, don't throw stones... but i put some cheerios on dd's tray yesterday mostly to see what she would do with them. she is 7.5 months and i didn't even know if it was ok nutritionally or safe for her to eat them, but i was farely positive she wouldn't be able to even get them in her mouth. i've done pieces of other foods before and she never eats them even if she can pick them up. well wouldn't ya know it, she picks 'em right up and eats 'em. i was shocked. she actually chews them (no teeth) and was loving it. my LLL said its a little early for her to have them cause of the wheat starch, but that it was totally fine depending on how i felt about that. i was gearing towards not giving her anything processed for as long as i could.. but now that i know she'll eat them, its very convenient. they have sugar and salt in them too which i don't like.. and most of what i've read about wheat is to wait til after a year. should i not be too worried about this?
