My daughter is 5 months old today. She was born Feb 16.
I started her on rice cereal once a day at 4 months of age, and have continued that for the past month. She has 6oz formula at 10:30am, 6oz formula at 2pm and her cereal, 6oz formula at 5:30pm, and 7oz formula at 9pm.
I just started giving her oatmeal this week. But again, I only give it to her once a day at her 2 o'clock feeding.
This is my first baby, so I'm seeking recommendations on when to start other foods like fruits and veggies, etc. Or if I should be feeding her the cereal/oatmeal more than once per day?
Also, now that I've started giving her oatmeal, do I continue giving her cereal also? Or is she done with that now???
Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks much!
