Our LO is approaching 7 months of age. At 6 months, we introduced the cereals -- one week rice, next week barley and we're on oatmeal this week. She's progressing quite nicely, and loves the oatmeal so we introduced a second meal of oatmeal. I know they recommend going to a mixed cereal after the single grains. I have a few questions:

1. If I mix my leftover rice, barley and oatmeal, is that OK for a mixed cereal (I understand that's what Heinz mixed cereal is: rice, barley and oatmeal!)

2. When is it time to move to veggies? Any time? After the single grains? After the mixed cereal?

3. When can O's be introduced? I'm not sure if she has the manual dexterity yet, but am curious as to when it is appropriate to start trying.

Thanks in advance!
