    Default Several brands OK or stick with one?

    Is there any problem in switching back and forth between different brands of rice cereal?

    I have several sample packs of beginner rice cereal (Heinz, Nestle etc) and I'd like to use them instead of wasting them, but I wonder if that would upset LO's tummy? Should I be consistent with just one brand?

    I will be starting him on solids in 2 weeks on his 6 month birthday! I cant believe he is 6 months already...

    Thanks!!

    I wouldn't imagine it's a problem. But alot of people skip rice cereal all together. Many people start on various veggies. We stared on oatmeal, but we went quickly to various veggies. They seem to like them better anyway.

    I don't think it matters, but I would still introduce it as a new food. For instance, I wouldn't do a brand one day and a different the next, until your LO has had the first brand for a few days first with no reactions.
