The Ice Queen

After a few mornings of Lulu refusing to eat her baby cereal, I started putting it in the fridge & giving it to her when she woke up from her nap. She'd eat it all up after her nap. Eventually I put two & two together. It was the chilled cereal she liked. No room temperature slop for my Lulu. It must be chilled. Now I prepare her cereal when I first wake up, put it in the fridge for an hour or so and then serve it up. The chilled cereal is gobbled down in an instant. She's a character. 

On another note, I worked out very early on that she has a slight wheat intolerance. Anything with wheat gives her gas, bad bad gas. The kind where she wakes up in the middle of the night screaming. Babies aren't supposed to have wheat until they're about 9 months, but some cope ok with it. We're hoping this is something she'll grow out of. 

When you check the back of baby food products, especially the cereal, wheat is snuck into a lot of them. We've found two brands, that don't have wheat, Rafferty's Garden for cereal and Ella's Kitchen for squeezy packs. Do you know of any others? The Ella's Kitchen ones are great as many of them don't taste sweet and Lulu still likes them.

  1. Isn't it funny how kids can show preferences at such a young age? So cute that Lulu prefers her cereal "chilled."

    We have a few cereals that are wheat-free but can you get them there? Earth's Best Organics has oatmeal, rice and barley cereal that are sans wheat. Haven't tried those squeeze packs yet and had no Idea they can contain wheat!
