DD is 6 months and at her check up I told the doctor we had started some solids (peas and carrots). He said that's great, but to really start with cereal as its fortified with iron which EBF babies need. I was really hoping to skip cereals all together based on my experiences with DS (he barely ate cereal and it seemed like a waste), but if I must for the iron, I will. Are there alternatives for iron enrichment, or is cereal the best way to go? If I do cereal, could I mix it with the veggies instead of water or expressed milk?
