For a variety of reasons, it became clearer and clearer that it was time for Nobley-Obley to start on rice cereal. At 2 months, Dr. D. told me it was time. We didn’t want to put the cereal in his formula and when I said that to Dr. D, he said, “then feed it to him with a spoon.” Oh, okay…have to say, that hadn’t really occurred to me (and no, I’m not being sarcastic for once). So, it took another month for me to wrap my mind around feeding a child younger than 4 months cereal (ALL the books say start solids between 4-6 months or your baby will blow up or something equally terrible…). The poor kid is gaining weight just fine, but just acts like he’s STARVING. We told ourselves we’d wait until 12 weeks (3 months sounds so much better than 2, doesn’t it?), so here we are.
Judge for yourself—I think Mikey likes it!
(P.S. He cries when he’s done with his cereal, the saddest little “you’ve really hurt my feelings!” cry. Apparently the kid loves to eat. Ah, he is a Weseloh, after all…)
