We followed our doctor's advice and waited until Ellie's 6 month birth-anniversary to try her on rice cereal. She didn't like it much.... Today, I have tried giving it to her 4 times. Finally, the 3rd time today, she ate up the minuscule amount I had made. I was so encouraged that I made a full portion for the 4th try today, and she got about half of it down. That is progress! The only bad thing is that I just put her to bed at 9:30 (instead of her normal 10:30-11:30). Hopefully she makes it until her normal 7:30-8:00 in the morning.
