Most mornings for breakfast, DS has oatmeal, pureed fruit, and some finger foods (cheerios, cut up grapes, etc). I breastfeed him, and I rarely pump, so when I do, I typically only get an ounce or two (he gets plenty when I nurse him, but I just don't get much with the pump.) I've just been mixing his oatmeal with water, because he absolutely will not eat it if I mix it with formula, and I don't pump enough to mix it with breastmilk. I feel like it would be healthier if I mixed the oatmeal with something else that has protein in it, but I'm not sure what to mix it with. He'll be ten months old next week. Is it too soon to give him whole cow's milk in his oatmeal? What about soy or almond milk? Or is water a better option than either of those at this age? He eats yogurt and cheese with no problem, so he doesn't seem to have a dairy allergy/sensitivity, but I don't know if cow's milk would be ok in cereal yet. Any thoughts?
