i have been contemplating whether or not to start feeding briggy cereal. ive read a lot about it and agreed its the best thing for him to wait until he's six months old. but lately he seem so unsatisfied with his feedings. normally he is never really cranky all throughout the day (but he hasnt been too pleasant the past week or so). we've been chalking it up to "teething" but i just dont know.....finally after his 7:30pm feeding he was still looking for more. so i mixed a tiny bit of cereal and gave him a couple bites----he seemed so delighted. i mean, he didnt take in very much at all (most of it on his shirt) but he is happy normal briggy now, just laying on a blanket having a nice time. i feel guilty for feeding him, should i be? ive read that allergies can come into play more when you feed early on and that their little digestive systems really arent ready until six months. If i do feed him im thinking i will feed him "dinner" like i did today, nurse him first and then feed a little cereal. can i do that for 1 1/2 months until he's ready for more at six? I just want to do the right thing and im always torn about what i read and what others are doing. any advice?
