Yes we did this and introduced toast first at 12 months. Make sure the bread is white and has no other additives (like antioxidant in the vegatable oil) though or it's not a fair test. Pita bread is good because it's only wheat, yeast and water.

As there are good alternative breakfast cereals we didn't bother for a while with weetbix etc.

bobbybob, are you bobthebaby/toddlerbob, i think you've advised me before on allergies? pidge are you out there at the moment??

Yes I am toddlerbob - just felt like a change. If you read the label and there is a E number then it's probably antioxidant. I would stear clear of any e numbers as you want a fair test of whether the wheat is okay.

I also baked my own cakes and biscuits.
