Actually, current thought is that babies can start eating between 4 to 6 months, whenever they lose the tongue reflex that causes them to push food out of their mouth, so that they swallow it instead. Some studies indicate that babies so inclined are more likely to have problems with allergies and diabetes if they start eating earlier, however.
I know a former coworker of mine would be telling me to put rice cereal in some milk for her, and we might just try that soon, but I'm going to try pumping to supplement her with my own milk first. We have some in the freezer - we might kill our emergency backup to solve our chicken-and-egg problem, knowing she can have formula if an emergency actually arises...
Thanks, for the comment though!
How is baby oatmeal different than oatmeal? Just more ground up?
