  1. Baby Girl didn’t like cereal. I learned that rice cereal naturally is high in arsenic so I chose other cereals. I thought of cereal as the carbs of grown ups. I’d mix some in with her food but didn’t insist on her eating it. I think we used one full box in six months. She loved veggies most. Remember he is still getting most of his nutrients from formula and solids initially are just to supplement and teach him how to eat. Just dont put it in the bottle (kills me when I hear of parents doing that).
