Every time I give my child cereal, he gives it back to me all over the kitchen.Did I do something wrong? In my opinion you have done nothing wrong. However, your child may not like the consistency of the cereal. Here are 3 steps you can follow to increase cereal in your child’s eating.
1. Add 1 teaspoon of baby rice cereal to an ounce of formula in a small bowl. Keep in mind it will be very soupy, but your child will start to get the taste of the cereal. Make sure to let her finish the bowl or bottle.
2. Increase the amount of cereal by one teaspoon to one ounce of formula. This addition will change the consistency ever so slightly. Your child will probably drink less milk in the feedings after that.
3. Increase to three teaspoons of cereal to an ounce of formula (you can increase formula to achieve desired consistency).
