My 5 month old dd is now doing great with solids. She reacted badly to rice cereal, so she gets barley and oatmeal. I recently gave her sweet potatoes, apples, and pears and she loved all of them. However, she absolutley HATED peaches. Anyway, my question is do you give a cereal everytime you give a fruit or veggie? I've mixed all of the above mentioned foods with cereal once I knew she liked them, but somehow I think that squash, carrots, and peas will not go too well with the cereal. I will only mix the fruit with oatmeal, and I mixed the sweet potatoes with barley. What do you ladies think? Can I give her fruits and veggies by themselves?

I would - by the way what was the reaction to rice cereal like, I am starting solids next week, beginning with rice cereal and I dont know what to look for.

I never really thought about it. My little piggy will eat any combination of anything at anytime, so I just give her some fruit and cereal in the morning and some cereal and veggies in the afternoon. I somehow imagine that the cereal would be easier on their stomach than just plain fruit or veggies, but I have no info to back that. It's just kinda what I guessed. Now you've got me thinking! I'm curious as to what every one else says.

Heather, my dd broke out into hives at the end of the second day of her eating rice cereal, so my pediatrician told me not to give it to her. She also got really cranky, and whiny. I never gave it to her after that, and she never had that reaction again.
