He loves it (even just mixed w/h2o) and doesn't spit it back out. We've noticed that when we give him it right before bed he goes down so much easier and sleeps more soundly- something we were having issues with. He still nurses to sleep the same amount of time, he just is less restless after falling asleep.
As you can see in my sig I am not a newbie here and I did start all my other dcs on rice cereal at about 4-5 mths (per dr's rec) and none of them have food issues and they all have varing body types now and then. But I'd never heard of rice cereal as being bad for babes till I read it here a few months ago.
So why is it bad? and what is your OP on should I stop and switch to whole (mashed) friuts and veggies till 9 months or older? I am not going to stop all together because it seems to be helping his sleep, he's so much happier and its only once a day. Oh he is BFed.
