My 6.5 mth old DS has been on solids for quite a few weeks now after being solely breastfed since birth. We started with rice cereal but we are now doing half BLW and half mushy foods. Basically, he loves everything we give him, which is great!
My question is- how long do we give rice cereal for? At the moment, we give him rice cereal mixed with BM and banana for brekky, then he gets what we're having (where appropriate) for lunch and dinner. Plus breastmilk at least 4 times a day too. Does he NEED rice cereal for the iron or should we assume that he is getting it from the rest of his diet?
If we can drop the rice cereal, what other things can we give him for brekky?
Thanks in advance
