I am frustrated! what does everyone else think- I waited until my ds was 6 mos to start cereal, and it has seemed like the two headed monster to me, I believe all you hear about the benes of waiting, but I feel so much pressure. Next thing we'll hear you shouldn't feed cereal until they're 1 yr or later. So now I almost feel guilty for starting cereal, because it's made to look like the devil. now I just read that you should wait 7 months, then they have less chance of anemia and have better iron stores. well, whatever! He seems to love it and can't get enough! A few questions, how much does your milk supply go down when feeding cereal, and how do you avoid constipation for baby? also, when did you start other types of cereals?
