Go to for great info and recipes on how to make your own brown rice or steel cut oats baby cereal. Much cheaper and healthier than the dehydrated, overprocessed boxed variety.

Your welcome :) I mix the oatmeal with yogurt and/or fruit purees like you said (mixed it w/pumpkin over Thanksgiving and he loved it) now he's 9 mos and I put cinnamon in it while it cooks. His fav is w/banana dices in it. Also use the oatmeal powder to make turkey meatballs instead of breadcrumbs. Love the site I gave, I use it to make all my babyfood!
