This is how I make cereal for my youngest daughter. I use many different grains/beans. She especially loves millet prepared this way! It really is so easy and nutritionally superior to the refined variety in the grocery store!

A wonderful alternative to store bought rice cereal! Our 6 month old is quite fond of the cereal made with short grain organic brown rice. It takes about 10 minutes to cook on the stovetop and it's worth the wait. I grind about a cup of rice on Sundays and store the powdered cereal in a glass jar in the fridge until I am ready to use it during the week.

I gave this 5 stars as it is so much cheaper to do this than buy the store bought. I do this with oatmeal also. Although I thought I would pass along what our pediatrician told us. She said that until our baby started eating meats (her recommendation was at 9 months) was when we could start making our own baby cereal. This is due to the fact that store bought baby cereals have added iron which baby needs.

I'm so glad I found this! I made this for myself as a substitute for oatmeal. I added a bit of rice milk and apple sauce for sweetness and it was delicious!

I used to make this for my daughter all the time. I tried to give it to her at 5 months, but she had a hard time swallowing it. But she ate this from 6 months - 19 months! I'm so glad to see it posted, it saved us a lot of money. I've made it with oatmeal too. Instead of water, I used breastmilk, formula & whole milk (I just switched as she grew). I would use 1/4 Cup ground oatmeal/brown rice and 2 Cups milk. As my daughter grew, I added more ground oats/rice to make it thicker.
