Safe by why start: Breast milk or formula provide balanced nutrition for infants for the first year of life.

No: Yes, if the doctor recommended adding rice cereal to breastmilk or formula as a thickener to decrease reflux/spitting symptoms. Otherwise, babies under 4 months of age do not eat baby food.

My baby ate expired rice ceral, should i be concerned? he isnt showing any signs of discomfort. i noticed the date after when looking thru the box.
Unnecessary : 50 years ago infants were fed solids early & frequently to make up for deficiencies in the evaporated milk formulas moms made at home. Today early feeds are an antiquated practice & do not add to the child's nutrition. Today solids are viewed as a tutorial to transition baby to the table. Starting at 6m as the tongue thrust fades & baby begins to sit is early enough. ...Read more
