    That's a really simple recipe to start with^. You could add some vanilla extract or the likes for extra flavour. Just have a google or look on pinterest. There is plenty of inspiration out there.

    So the chia seeds must be left overnight? How annoying.

    Yes, and you need to stir or shake up the chia seeds every few hours to begin with so it's even. Otherwise you get a few hard clumps. It is yummy though

    Yep, they turn into a gel if left to soak. You can just soak them with water and use as an egg replacer in baking or as a spread on sandwiches. I'm sure there are other uses.
    You can still eat them as they are too. I sprinkle them on salads and on top of avocado toast.
    If you use pinterest, definitely search them on there. There's bound to be heaps of recipes and ideas.

    Is rice milk safe for an 8 month old? I thought it was not recommended for kids under 5?

    Yep, it's not but rice based cereals are recommended from 6 months??? Guess it depends why you are avoiding it? I think the 'not recommended under 2 years' found on rice milk cartons is because it doesn't have a great deal of nutritional value whereas the general 'not recommended under 5 years' is from an inorganic arsenic point of view. But at the same time why are other rice based baby foods generally acceptable?

    Guess it's a personal choice at the end of the day. Cows milk isn't exactly great for humans but the bulk of the population consumes it.
