Baby oatmeal


My daughter just turned 11m. I still feed her infant oatmeal for breakfast every morning mixed with a purée of sorts for flavor. Does anyone else still do this? I also feed her whatever I’m eating too when she’s done. I guess I am not sure if she’s supposed to still be having it?

    She can have what ever her mama gives her 😁 sounds fine to me! maybe try to just be sure she is feeding herself as much as possible vs you spoon feeding her

    My son had it till he decided he didn’t want it anymore. Won’t hurt her if you want to continue to offer it. If you don’t want to give it to her no big deal either

    We started using regular oatmeal with cut up fruit, but my LO had 6 teeth by that age.

    It’s practically the same as an adult eating oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. I wouldn’t worry. As long as she feels happy and full.

    My son was maybe 15 months and I would still do this for him. We struggled with foods and textures and this he could tolerate. I don't see why not give her some still.

    It’s fine, but it’s definitely cheaper to do adult oatmeal if you want. You could ever still use a food processor to chop it up.

    If your baby still wants it, I say give it to him. It’s still healthy for him, just maybe give some soft bits of fruit in it like banana.
