    Rice Cereal

    Hi there,

    My 6 mth old has just started on solid. He had rice cereal (from Gerber) to begin with. He loved it but tiny acnes broke out so I switched to another brand (Nestle). Now he has eczema-like rashes on his forehead, eyelids, and around lips. People told me that it's because rice cereal is 'heaty' for Chinese. I wonder if there are other alternatives?? (My 1st born was on Nestle and he was fine!)

    Would love to hear from all other moms who have any ideas. Many thanks!

    Hi,

    Was recently trying to choose a rice cereal for our son- the Nestle one (if you look on the back) has fish gelatin added to it! Have no idea why they would need to add fish gelatin to a rice cereal and when I saw that I refused to buy it. This might be source of your problem. Park n Shop have organic brown rice cereal, which Dr said is much harder for a baby to digest than white rice cereal; but organic might be the way to go- you could try Bumps to Babes, or ThreeSixty in the Landmark.

    Refused Solid

    My 6-month-old also preferred milk over solid. He would make a fuss in the middle of the a cereal/porridge feed and demand milk. And he would be completely content after that.

    Should I wait another week or so?

    Starting solid

    Hi Bekyboo44,

    Thanks so much for your reply. I was also told that babies should start with single grain/white rice cereal since it's easier to digest. But would certainly try the organic ones you referred to. Thanks again.

    You can buy Organix white rice cereal at Bumps to Babes or ThreeSixty.
    It is 100% organic rice, no added ingredients.

    I think it's cheaper at Bumps to Babes but they don't always have stock.

    Thanks Matty, I got it from Park 'N Shop last night and would give it a go today. Fingers crossed.
