Starting Cereal

I thought it was time to start feeding Christian ever since he tried to grab and eat my dad's pizza, grabbed at some M&M's from my mom's co-worker, and hadn't slept through the night for several nights in a row. I wasn't sure how he was going to do since we were starting a little earlier than we did with Joseph. He has done very well with it, but doesn't seem to L-O-V-E it like Joseph did. Christian will only eat about 1 tbsp, where as Joseph could polish off about 2-3 tbsp. Doesn't seem like a lot, but for rice cereal, it is! I don't know if he just isn't interested or if he is distracted by the big brother. Either way, he does pretty good and I can't wait to start him on veggies and fruit.

Try adding it to his bedtime bottle. You'll have to cut a bigger hole in the nipple, but at least he'll get used to the texture gradually and hopefully sleep through the night again.
