I am starting cereal this week and he isnt eating it very well does it just take time? i know with the daycare kids it just kind of took time for them to get used to but i was told to not put it in the bottle.

I'm betting my reply won't be a lot of help to you, but my LO never ate the plain rice cereal. He hated it! If I was lucky to get a bite in he would just spit it out. After telling our pediatrician about it, she finally just let us try veggies. Good luck. Some of the other ladies suggestions were really good though. Hope something works for you, but if it doesn't things will still turn out okay.

My kids had a little trouble when I first started feeding them cereal untell they got the hang of eating off of a spoon. They wouldn't even attempt to eat it unless I mixed some fruit juice in with it to make it taste better.

Mix the cereal with applesauce or a type of baby fruit in the jar. That is the way I got my daughter to eat cereal.

No you don't want to put it in the bottle. Sometimes they really just don't like the flavor, try mixing it with a little baby applesauce. Sometimes it just takes a lot of patience.
