My little Brooklyn officially had her first rice cereal meal! We decided to try on Christmas morning after we opened presets. We followed the box which said 1 tbsp rice cereal with 5 tbsp breast milk. I attempted to feed her with her new spoons and bib however I quickly realized it was going to over an hour to feed with the spoon. I gave up and dumped it in the bottle with a little more milk and let her drink it. She did great! No upset tummy and she was full for hours.
Over the last several days we have followed the same routine of 1 tbsp in one meal per day. This weekend we are going to up her to two. I don't think I will be able to do the bottle trick. Hopefully the two tbsp gets it thick enough to spoon feed!
