The Earth's Best Organic Whole Grain Oatmeal Cereal is a great choice for baby's first cereal for many different reasons. We particularly liked that it is organic, is made from whole grains, is not sweetened, and mixes well with a variety of foods. Oatmeal in particular has a lot of fiber and our child actually preferred it to the Rice cereal, which we tried first. We have made it plain with water or breastmilk and it mixes very easily and is not clumpy at all. We also like to mix it in with pureed veggies or fruits to bulk up mealtime a bit for baby. He ate this every morning for a very long time! His favorite was oatmeal mixed with applesauce. It can be a little messy like any solid food so we made sure he was wearing a bib whenever he ate. It does wash off clothing pretty easily but when he was learning to use his own spoon he would get it stuck in his hair quite a bit but nothing a bath/shower won't fix!
