    Where to get baby oats?

    hi everyone!

    i thot i should introduced some sort of oats to my 6mths old. Where can I get it HK? I have tried 360, city super and the local supermarkets but to no avail.

    So far she has been on brown rice cereal and i think she maybe constipated due to it. She cries each time she poos.. poor thing. I am feeding her apple and prune fruit, pear and loads of water and hoping that i dont have to insert any glycerin into her.

    thanks

    We get our rolled oats for his oatmeal from 360 and I have now seen the same bag at our Taste in Stanley.

    hi southside!

    can you please let me know what is the packaging brand? Obviously we missed it. And is it suitable for a 6mths old?

    thanks for much!

    You can buy Rolled Oats at 360, Olivers, Citysuper, Taste and now even Wellcome stocks a brand of rolled oats (not organic). Bob's Red Mill is one of the organic brands.

    For a young baby though the best thing is to grind it to a fine powder first and then cook. (1/4 cup oats added to 1 cup boiling water for 10 mins). You can do this with almost any grain! I did this for my LO and rarely fed a boxed cereal.

    augustbump, it's Bob's Red Mill organic oats and it's by the cereal section at 360. it's totally suitable for baby oatmeal, just puree it to your desired consistency and mix with a pear. we used annabel karmel's first oatmeal recipe. my son loved it!
