How long did you all keep your babies on rice cereal and/or the baby oatmeal? Did you phase it out before you were fully on solid foods?

I introduced solids at 6mo and 1 wk. I did cereal for about a week, then introduced strained peas and then strained beans. Then when I ran out of those about 2 weeks later (I made my own) I gave him unstrained but still blended up peas and beans, along with fruit and other veggies.
At one year I still give him cereal, but mostly to help thicken up foods to make them easier for him to spoon up himself.
Take a look at my posts on these links, they may give you some good ideas as your baby gets older.
Check out www.wholesomebabyfood.com Lots of good advice, and think about trying to make at least some of your own baby's food. It is as easy as cooking something and then mashing it. And lots cheeper than buying baby food.
