Re: cereal and baby food
Totally okay to do either. And you don't need to feed him rice cereal unless you want to. Cereal is fortified with vitamins and minerals, but aside from that it's pure starch. Not the healthiest stuff! If you're concerned about your baby's iron levels, feeding him iron-rich solids like spinach usually are enough.
is it ok to mix baby food into his cereal? or should i just feed him plain baby food? we started with peaches and mixed fruit!
Oh, and until a year, keep trying to nurse before offering solids. Until the first birthday, you want to maximize the baby's breastmilk intake, and use solids as dessert.
