Does anyone have ideas on breakfast ideas for a 6 month old. My daughter does not like rice cereal (even if I mix with puree fruit)or weetbix? She has been on solids for a month.

Hey Lisa, How funny i came across your post on here. I've been giving kiani toast with a little spread on it, and other days she has scrambled eggs, with the whites included. she loves it. She wasn't a big fan of weet bix either. Fussy little buggers hey :)

my daughter just doesnt like breakfast! it took me nearly a month to realise this.

we tried EVERYTHING... cerial, yogot, fruit, custard... you name it! didnt want a bar of it! BUT would eat if for morning tea!

i have just accepted that she is not a breakfast person so we have formula only and then have some fruit at about 10am instead!

My little girl loved bananas mixed with avocado and a little farax :) bananas used to cause constipation so I added a bit of avocado and she loved it!

My 8 month old loves oatmeal and mixed cereal...You can mix a little bit of fruit like pears, peaches, bananas, and apples....She eats a lot more of the cereal when I do that...Also Gerber now has baby yogurt for the sitter stage, and Beechnut has Good Morning mixes in a jar...They have cereal, granola, fruit, yogurt, and different mixes...My baby loves it!

How about instant oatmeal or cream of wheat? My kids loved good old fashioned homemade oatmeal with chopped apples in it.

you should not give a baby under a year eggs, it could cause an allergy later in life, this can also happen with dairy if it is introduced to early. my 15 year old niece just developed and allergy to eggs and a sensitivity to dairy this past year and until this happened she had not gone a day without eggs and milk since she was about 7 months old.

My 7 month old loves eating either a smashed banana, plain weetbix, a cruskit, or a piece of toast (with a verysmall amount of butter on it). She has even tried rice bubbles when I decided to have some for breakfast and loved them!

My little boy loved porridge. I'm not sure where you live but here in Australia Uncle Tobbies make a honey bezz porridge in little sachets that you just add water or milk and then heat and serve. My little boy went crazy for it. He also loved mashed banana and for a change I would put it in yoghurt or custard. He like the farex rice cereal with a big banana mashed through it but wouldn't eat otherwise.

My son was not big on the rice, either. He liked the oatmeal and LOVED the whole wheat, especially with the apples and blueberries fruit stirred in. He always had a bottle first though. About an hour and a half after he drank his bottle, he ate the cereal.

both my boys were eating solids by 3 months old and the doctor told me as long as they dont gain too much weight, make them sick, not greasy and still have their formula for the added nutrients it was fine. mine ate eggs mashed potatoes and anything that could be gummed or smashed well b4 they ate it..now they are 6 and 11 yrs old and healthy as horses.

My daughter wasn't crazy about the rice cereal either. Have you tried the oatmeal or the barley?

Eggs, full fat yogurt, oatmeal, if she has any teeth you can give toast. However, formula or breast milk is best for breakfast. She needs a lot of fats and proteins to get her through the day so the first meal should be formula or breast milk with a little something on the side.
