My lil guy will be 5 months on the 24th. I introduced rice at about 3 1/2 months or a little later. He did NOT like it at all. They say not to give up so I tried it for a few days. I heard that you can feed them any SINGLE grain cereal so I tried oatmeal instead of rice...He LOVED it!!! I have been giving him oatmeal ever since. I'm just not sure how much to give him though...I usually give him about 2 tablespoons around 1130-12pm. Should I give it to him at dinner time too??? And when should I introduce fruits/veggies??? He is a tiny thing...long, but lean. He is 26in but only 14lbs 13oz. I'm hoping the cereal will help him gain some weight. Any suggestions???
