Q.

Starter cereal

Hi Doc

My baby is 5 and a half months old. I intend starting her on solids at 6 months.

Is Nestle Cerelac Rice Cereal an appropriate cereal to start solids with? My daughter does have a bit of eczema.

Thank you.

Yes, you are correct, a rice cereal is the best starting cereal especially as your baby has eczema.
