    umm, so are the other varieties (that actually taste ok) for older babies just as bad? because i sometimes alternate his cereals for something different and use (states it's for 9mth old's +) Farex muesli with apple and my DS cant get enough of it. My DD loved this particular one too.
    I dont think its the parents fault for feeding their 4 mth old, baby rice cereal. It's absolutely flogged. The parents just think they are doing what everyone esle daoes and the packaging says it's all good/added iron....so it must be ok, right?! If it's soooo bad for babies, Why hasnt it all been taken off the market for false advertising?!

    Honestly, I dont get the whole hooplah with rice cereal. ... its ground rice? Rice is a very common food (and first food) in many cultures around the world. You can make it at home. I also dont get thr shock that it converts to glucose (sugar) in the body... um rice is a carb & carbs do convert to glucose as fuel for the body/ brain... I dunno, it just seems a whole lotta hullabaloo about nothing!
    I know- I was specifically referring to those who used it solely to help their baby sleep longer.

    As with everything, just wanted to get the info out there. Use it, don't use it- doesn't bother me

    That was actually my typo! And I have skinny fingers =)

    I genuinely meant that 'highly refined' is a no no for me, let alone future bub. So I didn't need to read all of the other reasons!
