Oatmeal or rice as first baby cereal
my daughter's nutritionist and pediatrician both said oatmeal because it's more nutritious. The rice essentially has no health benefits except for the artificial things they add to it. they also said to start with the oatmeal at 4 months with a spoon. you don't want it in the bottle because it creates a choking hazard and if you wait till 7 months, like most doctors recommend, babies tend to have a harder time taking to a spoon for some reason.
