My LO just turned 5 months old today.
Hi! Congrats on 5 months!
We're in the same boat. My son just turned 5 months a few days ago. Our pediatrician recommended one "snack" of rice cereal after a feeding per day. We've tried it and it's great fun, but he doesn't particularly care to swallow it =). Hopefully he'll develop a better taste for it soon.
I started mine of on rice cereal first then move her on to oatmeal. I always give it to right before her last bottle so she will sleep longer threw the night. Once she was eating good in the evening I started her on a bowl in the morning. She is doing quiet well. I always mix it with breastmilk not water too. Hope this helps!
Thanks for the feedback.
We do 2 T oatmeal in the am w/ 1/2 container of prunes.
We started oatmeal at breakfast and dinner this weekend and she LOVES it.
I started my LO on cereal about 2 weeks ago and she loves it, sometimes she gets a little fussy with it, if shes tired or too hungry but I offer it 3 times a day.
Thanks for replying to my post from last August.
