Re: First meal!!!
Nov 29, 2005
I was always told to do rice cereal plain for about a month, 2x a day. Then introduce fruit or veggies with that ( there is no proof that they will favor sweets over veggies if you do either first). Start with a tablespoon of cereal, and increase as tolerated.
I too was told to nurse or give a bottle first, because at that little age, it is much more important than the cereal. Cereal at this age isn't for the nutrition, it's to get them use to eating. They can do fine on formula or BM till around 7 months. We started at around 5 1/2 months, and ds loved it, now, 2 months later, we are doing 3 meals a day.
