Everyone around us is giving us grief because we decided not to start DS on rice or cereal. From what I read, it's not necessary to start with these. We waited until this past Monday and started sweet potatoes. Should we start cereal or rice? Or is this just something families like to put their opinion in on? My MIL thinks this is why DS is a terrible sleeper. But we don't give a bottle at bed time per se. I bf and use a sns at bedtime and DS doesn't even eat those two ounces from the sns.
