I've been giving my 4 1/2 month old rice cereal for 2 weeks and she has taken it very well. I know the ped told me when I could start introducing other cereals, I think it was 2 weeks but I'm not sure. Am I ok to try barley or oatmeal now? Thanks ahead of time.

Yep. I gave Cate Rice cereal for about 2 weeks, then Barley for 2 and then Oat cereal. Once I knew she could tolerate all of them, I started mixing them together for different tastes (once a week for something different). Good Luck!

I started Dylan off with Oatmeal w/ bananas cereal. We skipped Rice cereal all together since my other 2 kids hated it. He's done fine with it. I say go ahead and try the barley or oatmeal. :o)

I can't find barley cereal anywhere. What is the brand name? Or, is this home made barley cereal?

We bought the "Beech Nut" brand. I don't think that Heinz or Nestle make barley cereal.

I'm actually glad you asked that. I went shopping today and I couldn't find it. So I decided to start oat first...I hope that's ok.

Zack has taken rice and oatmeal. Since I can't find barley cereal, I started him on Mixed Grain cereal today.

I did not bf. My mum told me once to use cold cabbage leaves to relieved painful b___st engorgement. Your question for me curious and I went and look up in WebMD. This is what I found - http://www.webmd.com/hw/being_pregnant/hw133991.asp?pagenumber=3
