Baby Cereal

Hi Mommies,

I gave my 5 month old oatmeal cereal and he seemed fine with it the first two times. Now when I try to give to him he gags! Any suggestions? Can I try baby corn meal? Thanks!

    I've never heard of giving corn meal so I am not sure. Could it be the consistency?

    I've tried different kinds of consistencies and still gags!

      I did the same with my little girls, Seryna and Emily, and I have to agree with Theresa it may be the consistency.

        instead of the oatmeal try the rice cereal it is a little finer than the oat meal

            Try to thin it out with breast milk.

              It is possible that he is just not ready for solid foods yet. I would wait a few days and try again.

                Unfortunately, he got constipated in the worst way and has a diaper rash. Not sure he's ready for solids. I'm going to wait. Thanks for asking!
