    Default Cereal?

    Do you have to start with cereal? I am going to make my own baby food. I've seen that there are organic baby cereals on the market. But what is good to start off with? what about baby oatmeal? Can a 6 mo old eat that?

    My DS never liked cereal....We started with some bananas, avocados and steamed apples.....

    Did your DS take to veggies good? I was told not to start with anything sweet at all. But I don't see how that would mess them um?

    I also heard not to start with anything sweet but then a mama made a good point and said breastmilk is sweet....so there's no reason why you can't start with fruit; apple, banana etc.

    Our osteopath said to skip cereal as it's nutritional value is low and my LO did not need the extra empty calories. His first solid was sweet potatoes and he loved them. He took all veggies first. I did introduce cereal (usaualy barley)and he loves it, too.
