Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to make it easier to start little ones on rice cereal. At my son's 4 month check-up his pediatrician suggested starting to try giving him rice cereal once a day before a bottle and slowly progess to more often and eventually food as he gets used to eating. Unfortunately my son is not having an easy time knowing what to do when the cereal is in his mouth and he really does not like the spoon in his mouth! I have tried feeding him at halfway between feedings to make sure he's not just too hungry to eat it and this seems to help, but he still fusses his way though it and won't finish a full serving. Does anyone have any ideas for how to make this transition easier for him?
