I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.
Rice cereal shouldn't be fed ever, even for reflux. More and more studies are showing it can cause diabetes and there are just empty calories. There are other ways now to deal with relux. My doctor basically said she can't think of a situation where she'd recommend a parent feed a baby of any age rice cereal anymore.
Ok I just did some googling and found that it's specific to babies already genetically at risk for diabetes - not across the board. However these two statements are fairly contradictory, only leaving a two month window of time to "safely" introduce cereal. The research showed that cereal introduction before four months of age increased the risk four times of developing diabetes autoimmunity, or the antibodies that are the precursor to type 1 diabetes. Research also showed children who were not given cereal until after six months of age were five times more likely to develop diabetes autoimmunity.
