My LO is almost 6 months now. I want to start her on cereal. Can she have steel cut oats at this age? I will of course puree it and get it the right consitancy for her. It would be healthier for her then store bought rice cereal. Just want to make sure that their bodies can handle it at this age.
Yes its fine and there is no need to puree it at 6 months; even if not doing BLW, just cook it for a bit longer than you would for an adult. Oats do contain a small amount of gluten but if your baby is very close to 6 months this is unlikely to be an issue xx
