We started the baby on rice cereal last week and she seems to be progressing quite nicely. For her first feeding, we made a very dilute mix of rice and milk, which is what we're showing below. This first feeding was pretty uneventful since she didn't want to take the milk mixture by spoon, but after a few more tries (and a much thicker preparation), she's getting the hang of it. She likes to grab at the spoon and "help" me feed her. She's still only eating a very small amount during each feeding, but it's getting easier (and more productive) each time we try.
