My son Easton will be 6 months old on the 25th, and he hates eating cereal!! We tried introducing it to him at 4 months and he will only eat a couple of bites. We have tried giving it to him several different ways, but all with no luck!! We've tried warming it, making it thicker, mixing it with formula, mixing it with water. We've tried rice cereal, and oatmeal cereal. We've tried different spoons, and in different places like his high chair or bouncy seat. I don't know if it's the texture he doesn't like or what!? I recently tried giving him baby food and he loves it! So, I thought I would trick him and mix some baby food with his cereal, but he was not having that! Is anyone else having this same problem? Is it ok to skip cereal and go to baby food?
