baby porridge or baby rice?


just wondering if people started with rice or porridge when first weaning? was thinking of not using rice just giving some plain porridge at breakfast once he reaches 6 months. have heard rice is not very good nutritionally, is porridge better?

We actually used neither, you don't have to use rice or porridge.
But as far as I've heard, lots of babies seem to prefer porridge to rice.

i'm using a teaspoon of baby porridge each morning after his usual feed, purely coz it tastes n smells better to me & seemed like a good place to start, lol.

The Plum brand porridge is good - it's actually quinoa, millet, amaranth and something else I forget... but very nutritious wholegrains rather than bleached white rice.

I've read that you gotta be careful with normal porridge and cerials (not baby ones) because they have a high salt count. A child should have no more than 1g of salt a day x

What becstar said. If your giving adult food, just watch out for the salt content. x
