Rice Cereal

We decided that it was time for J to try rice cereal. He has definitely been very interested in food lately. If he sees someone eating, he instantly becomes interested in them and will try and find ways to taste whatever it is, even if it is just sucking on your finger. If he is taking his bottle and sees someone eating, he looses interest in the bottle. We figured that since he is about four months old, can sit up in his high chair, and is obviously interested in eating, it was time to introduce rice cereal.

J did really well at taking the spoon and swallowing the cereal, but he appears to be very disgusted by the taste.

As you can see from this picture, he started pulling some faces. He would still open his mouth to take more, but as soon as he realized the taste, he would look disgusted.

Today, I tried mixing a little bit of apple juice in with the rice cereal to see if that would help improve the flavor, but he still was not going for it. Hopefully we will be able to move on to baby food soon and he will find that to be a little more appealing!


  1. Are you using the box of cereal? I bought the cereal that was already made and in the little jars. Mini Pez could not get enough of it, she did not like the box stuff. I did cut a bigger hole in her bottle nipple and then I would just add a little bit of the box cereal and feed that to her before bed. It sat heavy on her stomach so she would sleep alittle longer.

    What is really cool is that before you know it, I will be commenting on your blog WOW you are 30 weeks. That makes me smile.

    I hope you have a good week.


  2. Hey there keep going he might start to like the taste! Good luck :)

  3. I love his bib, such a cutie! I hope he likes fruits and veggies a bit better!

  4. I love you dear baby I send you a A lip kiss please accept it. :K
