3. Pour 4oz of Breastmilk (or formula) into sauce pan.
4. Add 1/4 Cup oat powder to sauce pan.

6. Remove from heat and let cool (it will be thicker than when you started)


After your freshly homemade baby oat cereal is made you can pour it into a small bowl and break out the baby spoon!

This recipie I found online and is intended for babies between 4-6 months of age, or later. Your baby should be able to hold ther head well, sit with support, no longer have the urge to push things out of their mouth with their tounge, be interested in eating, and be able to make eye contact and smile. I found many different suggest when you do start new foods. We intend on feeding the same thing once every 4 days and will add a new food each month until we hit 8 months, takng our time and spacing things out. Afterall she is getting all the nutrition she needs already, so for now its just learning to eat. 🙂







A hand MUST accompany each spoonful!


Oh ya Im happy!

  3. The hand in the mouth WHILE eating is such a familar shot! Congrats on making homemade baby food! We’re spacing out the new foods every 4 days too. It works great. What’s the next food on the list?

    • Not 100% yet. Maybe peas, avacados, or sweet potatos. It kinda depends on whats available when I go shopping at the time. More than likely it will be avacados because I love them so nearly always have them and sweet potatos are more difficult to find.
