    We started offering cooked brown rice @ 6 1/2 months. Rice is very low risk for allergies. I would encourage you to use whole grain brown rice as it is in the purest form and has the most nutrients.

    I posted a recipe for really easy brown rice in my IronChef entry (shameless plug ). I like it because there is no salt added.

    I give Peter rice - it has helped him master the pincher grip I think, as he now can pick up each individual grain.

    Daniel just grabs a handful, squeezes,and eat what comes out of the top of his hand. Its so funny. If there are three pieces left though, he will use his pincer grip.

    Brown rice was one of the first solids we gave nora. she loves it. it's good for when they have diahrrea, too.
