My 6-mth old can't stand the dried powdered stuff that you mix with milk as breakfasts (been using a banana breakfast and an Apricot & Strawberry breakfast - Heinz Organics).

I don't know what other kinds of cereal he can have.... can anyone help me here ?

I think I introduced Weetabix at 6 months. But in my day (4 years ago!) we introduced solids at 4 months. I'm a bit wary of offering advice tbh.

at 6 months they can have wheat and oats. try weetabix or porridge. My son loved/loves both of those. Shredded wheat is also low sugar too. It depends how he is with lumps.

When do they introduce solids now? Mine was four years ago too. I also used to give dd weetabix.

or you could go down the toast route when he starts finger food.

lucy5 lots of these threads become quite heated. The gov advice is 6 months but it is not filtering down to hvs and lots of people want to/have start earlier. Theres are a zillions threads about it

Mashed banana in milk,
Porridge with crushed strawberries/banana,
Weetabix with milk,
fromage frais (not sure if baby at 6 months can have this though)

oh, that completely passed me by. Why 6 months? I hope i'm not opening a can of worms.

Now it's turned out that Weetabix is still okay for 6 month olds I've remembered that both mine ate Weetabix mixed with mashed banana in vast quantities. Can have a dubious effect on nappies though, beware!

oats with pureed apple and dates, yummy


pureed fruit

Since my DS was 6 months old he's had only weetabix and ready brek with different fruit purres mixed in to sweeten/flavour it.

Do you put cows milk on the weetabix and ready brek ?

Yes, I think cow's milk is allowed on cereals and in cooking from 6 months.
