Hi Ladies, DD completed 5 months a week ago and her pediatrician gave green signal for starting solid foods. She has advised to start with a spoon of rice cereal, slowly increasing a spoon after few days, and then repeat the process with oatmeal cereal and barley cereal. I purchased the Gerber Rice and Oatmeal cereal, and am feeding her rice cereal mixed with formula milk for the past 3 days. But, DD fusses and cries a lot when I feed her cereal, and becomes very happy when I give her formula milk (She is formula-fed; and nurses only during nap-times and night time due to my milk supply issues since the beginning). I am confused if she is not yet ready for solids, or if she is not liking the taste of store-bought cereals? I also tried giving her rice and moong dal once, but she had the same reaction. Please advise how can I make this experience enjoyable, or if I need to wait a few more weeks before giving her solids.. Also, should give her water? Which is the right age for starting water?
