When can my baby start eating rice cereal?


Answer by  benjiross (993)

The safest and best time to start rice cereal is about 6 months of age. However, plain rice cereal (with no added pulses etc) can be started as early as 3 months after consultation with a doctor. The cereal should not be made too dilute and should be in the recommended concentration.

A baby can start eating rice cereal at 4 months old. It is recommended that babies do not generally eat until they can sit upright and swallow solids, which is closer to six months old.

Our pediatrician states that 6 months is the ideal time to start cereal feeding. Before that, only milk, and after cereal feeding, start with vegetables.
