I mentioned to the ped dd2 loves her cheerios. She is 7months old and 80% or more of the cheerios end up on the floor. The dr said no cheerios. What am I suppose to give her to munch on? Dr told me 4oz of food plus cereal a day until she is 9months old. Well, when the older kids eat she likes to eat with them. What finger foods can I give a 7months old? I never had this problem with the other kids. Ds was on a strict diet at her age and dd1 ate cheerios.
I asked my grandmother why no cheerios. She guessed because it is too processed.
Dr also told me to give her oatmeal or barley for cereal since she does not seem to care for rice. She loves rice cereal it is the iron. So, my grandmother told me to make her oatmeal myself. I did and she loved it. I took 1/2c of oatmeal and put it in my blender until it was dust. I cooked for 5min and let cool. At dinner I gave her 3tbls warmed up in the microwave and then mixed with bm to thin it out. I took a few bites it was gooood. I know it is not iron fortifed but I think she gets enough...KWIM.
Thanks for your help and tips.
