Hi just a quick question which may make me sound so stupid. Got a packet of baby rice and it says to add 10 spoons of baby's milk and one spoon of rice. So I'm guessing this means basically make up a bottle and add a spoon of milk to it? Done that and poured in bowl and it's basically milk. Am I missing something here? confused

I wouldn't give them baby rice. Assuming they're over 6 months if they're in solids just give them whatever you're having. Just don't add salt.

Mine hated it.

Just give them what you are having or start with purée fruit or veg

Baby rice is tasteless mush

Just warm your milk up and add in small amounts until you're happy with consistency. It thickens loads though so less is more.

I could go on about the crapness of baby rice but I prefer it as an easy breakfast to sugar filled cereals.

One thing baby rice IS good for is as a filler for sausages <irrelevant > grin

You can add it to mashed/puréed banana with an egg to make pancakes. They were meant to be for the child but I may have accidentally eaten them.
