Oatmeal Baby Cereal Video

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.

It's one that that no one tells you and which all new moms should know. Simply watch this How to Make Homemade Oatmeal Baby Cereal Video to find out what I learned for myself when my kids were infants. It will save you a bundle of money over time and your baby will eat fresh -- preferably organic -- oatmeal that tastes better than anything out of a box. Being that it's probably one of the first solid foods your baby will be eating, that seems pretty important to me!

Once my babies were comfortable eating rice cereal, I alternated serving them oatmeal cereal to try out a new grain on them. Like most new moms who have been conditioned over time to accept that buying pre-packaged baby food purees and cereals is what your supposed to do (as opposed to making their own), I did exactly that, buying a big canister of oatmeal cereal, adding some breast milk or water to it and voila, I had breakfast or a snack for my babies. But have you ever tried a bowl of homemade oatmeal cereal? The difference is night and day. The one you can make yourself tastes exactly the way oatmeal should taste and is smooth and creamy. It's also the perfect base for whatever flavors you choose to add to it.

Making the homemade version couldn't be easier (or more economical, think pennies a serving versus whatever you are currently paying for the pre-packaged variety). Just take a few minutes to watch this Oatmeal Baby Cereal Video and see how simple it is. I promise you and your baby will be happy you did!

    I know this can be done, but baby oatmeal has added iron. If you are breastfeeding your baby they may not be getting enough iron (formula also has added iron). My child was slightly anemic, and the pediatrician recommended baby cereal as a way to increase his iron until he would eat more meats.

    Just wanted to mention this in case anyone else is concerned with iron and their child.

    I like to change my baby's meals. Great alternative to the boxed cereals.

    This video is misleading. The only reason I give my babies boxed infant cereals is because they are fortified. Iron is especially important after 6 months. Until my guys are eating full meals containing many iron rich foods, infant cereals will be part of their diet. It's not just about saving money and bring 'natural'.

    Just made this today and added a tbsp of breastmilk, my 4.5 month old little guy liked it! (it was his first venture into solids). Will this keep in the fridge for a day or two once cooked? I hate wasting food but also know my LO won't eat more than a tsp or two at this point.
