I'm making a list of things that my boys tried in the past months (foods wise) and the verdict! I will probably have to update this in a coming months as they try more stuffs :-)
1. Gerber Rice Cereal
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥
Comment: Bought this at a very last minute when the boys' pedi told me to try to mix Winston's formula with cereal to help with his silent reflux. When his reflux gone, I gave this cereal for both Sanford and Winston as their first solid at 4 months, once a day- again as directed by their pedi. If I have time to do research, I won't pick it again. I tasted it, it was bleh. And as usual Winston cried eating this cereal by spoon.
2. Earth's Best Organic Whole Grain Oatmeal Cereal
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: As soon as I'm done with Gerber, I bought Earth's Best Organic Oatmeal Cereal. The ingredients are just that, Oatmeal. Nothing complicated and it's organic too. The boys loves this and got mad when I didn't feed them quick enough when their mouth already open lol. They've been having this cereal and the multi grain (see no.3) since 4.5 months old for once a day, then at 5 months twice a day, from 6 months-cereal in the morning plus homemade veggie purees for dinner and currently cereal in the morning, fruit/veggie purees for lunch (at daycare) and veggie purees for dinner, all those in addition to maintaining 30oz milk a day or more (some days 30oz doesn't seem to be enough). Note: I tasted this, if I can eat it, I was so sure the baby can too and I was right.
3. Earth's Best Organic Whole Grain Multi Grain Cereal
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: I'm alternating between this and no.2 above. Love them equally.
4. Yo Baby Simply Plain Yogurt by Stoneyfield
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥
Comment: Not too bad taste wise, but too watery for our liking and it was pretty annoying and hard to feed this to a baby in a spoon when it's like feeding them a water! I would love for the texture to be like the adult yogurt but in the mean time, I'm not buying anymore until maybe when the babies can eat on their own or just skip to adult yogurt instead.
5. Happybaby Organic Puffs (Green flavor)
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥♥
Comment: They gave me faces when they tried this for the first time about 2 weeks ago at 7 months. The texture definitely something new to them. But I'm giving them an opportunity to learn how to chew especially since I can see that both of them are about to sprout their first tooth. A couple try later they loved it. I only gave them half puff at the time because sometimes they forget that they need to chew not swallow. By the way, I took a few myself while feeding them these. They are really yummy.
