Stella’s first attempt at solids!

With 6 months fast approaching and Stella’s appetite taking after her parents, Bear and I decided it was time Stella tried some cereal.  Needless to say, she HATES it!  We decided to try rice cereal first because we were told it was gentle and least likely to trigger allergies. Stella’s eczema is still hanging around so we figured it was a good idea to start there and then move up the ranks once we saw how she handled it.  Well she HATES rice cereal! I don’t know if its the texture, taste or both.  I also don’t think it agrees with her.  Stella wasn’t sleeping well after we gave her the cereal.  She was up almost every 2 hours every night and very fussy.  I think it gave her a tummy ache! I was so confused on why she wasn’t sleeping well anymore.  She usually is such a great sleeper.  We haven’t given her any cereal since last week and she is sleeping through the night again! 3 nights in a row!  If I have anything to say about it I say no more rice cereal!  I think this weekend we will try the oatmeal cereal.  Wish us luck!

    Good Luck,

    Garrett didn’t really like the mushy, farina type cereals – we used to mash our own banana really well and mix the rice cereal into that… and he really liked the instant oatmeal with a little extra water to make it softer…

    Hope Stella likes the other kind.

    Love to you all,

    Aunt Anni
