Twenty-One and Rice Cereal to Celebrate
The munchkin is now 21 weeks old. I guess that is nearly five months. I still can't believe it! I tried to feed her some rice cereal today. She looked less than thrilled with it and spit most of it out. I tried it to see what it was like. Yuck. At least I know she inherited my good taste for food! I think I will wait a few more weeks before we try again. Dr. Hein says just breastmilk is fine until 6 months, but if we wanted to try some rice cereal, to go ahead and give it a whirl. It said that the cereal really does little for her nutrition-wise and that she is mostly just getting practice eating solid foods. We may just start her on veggies at 6 months. I wasn't able to take pictures during the feeding as I was trying hard not to have cereal all over!
