My 6½ month old son acts like he is teething this time with his upper teeth, he wasn't bothered by his bottoms erupting. Could it change like that? Also he is acting like I never feed him enough he eats fine up until dinner which is when he gets a bottle, cereal, fruit, and veggies. He gets so angry about having to eat the cereal.. He will hold his breath, turn red, scream and cry I don't understand what I am doing wrong. I have taken care of my niece and nephew but they are so much older now and my son is my first child. PLEASE HELP!!

It's a lot cheaper and easier to make your own baby food. Just puree what ever the rest of the family eat without the salt, pepper or sugar. No need to get welfare for baby food then.
Before 12 months, solid food is just for texture and taste, not nutrition. You are supposed to just introduce 1 food at a time and feed them that for at least 5 days to see if they have any reaction. If he doesn't want the cereal then don't give it to him.

Our,well his, pediatrician cleared him at 1 month for it I wanna say, and I didn't tell them just because I didn't want to listen to them. Horrible I know but saves me aggravation lol. And he started baby food at 4 months which they found did not meet their guidelines any longer and had to wait until he was 6 months..which I didn't care because we still bought it for him.

They tried to tell us not to give my son rice cereal at 4 months but he was eating every hour and that's too much formula lol

I totally agree and in fact was just talking about my son's pediatrician... She put him on multi vit with fluoride says he is old enough also gave him ibuprofen for 5 days for shots... I have found that other babies have never been on multi vit..and also said he can have table food now...anyway I am not so thrilled about saying this but it helps, he is on wic and I don't know how to go about telling them that he won't eat the cereal without them saying I'm depriving him of nutrients from it. Thank you for your reply!
