Babies and rice cereal

Jael - posted on 10/01/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




My 5 month old hates rice cereal. She gets a disgusted look on her face whenever I give it to her and refuses to eat any more. She loves bananas and apples and a lot of other baby foods. My other daughter who is now 2 was the same way, and had sensitivities to the rice for a long time, almost through her 1st birthday. I was wondering how other people's babies are doing with rice cereal as I am hearing more and more cases of babies not doing well with it as a first food?

My first son also hated rice cereal. And Barley and Mixed grain. The only cereal he would eat was baby oatmeal made with milk and cinnamon. Just keep trying diffrent mix-ins with it. My 2nd currently loves his rice cereal made with apple juice( this combination gives him gas though), or made with water and bannana. Good Luck!
