I’m sure you’re here looking for reviews on if babies like it/digestion/etc. They do. Mine loved it, it didn’t hurt her tummy, and when added to formula, it helped her get fuller, quicker (plus it made it sweeter, which made her happier to drink it)


Moms, if you’re breastfeeding and having issues with supply, you’ll be told to eat lactation cookies, take supplements, and eat oatmeal for breakfast every day. I personally hate oatmeal. It’s gooey and tastes like paper to me. The texture is awful... I’m just not an oatmeal person. So id eat this. Sure, it’s for babies and you might feel a little crazy mixing up a bowl for yourself, but mix some milk in and add in enough to make it lumpy, not runny, and you get the same nutrients as you would from oatmeal, without having to choke it down and saying “it’s for my baby”

It’s a great alternative for fellow oatmeal haters. It doesn’t taste bad, either.

This is so perfect for your baby even as an infant if milk or formula isn't enough to fill them up alone. Now that she's over one I mix the oatmeal with any of the Gerber fruit tubs I still have. She loves it! And I love that it's all natural, real and healthy. I know she's getting full and that it tastes good and also is helping her digestive system through transition.

I started my 4 month old with his doctor recommendation on oatmeal cereal. It took a few feedings for him to get used to the taste but now he chows it down every morning. He prefers it mixed with formula not water. I also add it to fruit or veg like apples or carrots that are more fluid. We started with oatmeal instead of rice due to issues with constipation and He hasn’t had any issues.

The only thing my son will eat. We tried the rice cereal and he was NOT a fan of that so just like the rice cereal I started adding it slowly into his bottles and instead of making a weird face or not wanting to drink it he actually enjoyed it, Now for breakfast I mix in a little bit of banana baby food with it and its his favorite thing to eat, so glad I gave this a try!

My son just started eating solid baby food and he loves Gerber cereal. I really cannot put it in his mouth fast enough. I love that Gerber breaks it down for when your child is ready for their first foods. Its at every grocery store I go to and reasonably priced.

I love this stuff! My daughter is 4 months old, with a super fast metabolism. I started giving her rice cereal in her bottles to help her feel full and gain some weight, but it constipated her so badly. Her doctor recommended we switch to oatmeal and now she getting nice and fat and pooping regularly. This has been a lifesaver for us!

I started introducing cereal around the 4 month mark and my 11.5 month old daughter still loves her cereal.  She especially loves the apple cinnamon and fruit chunk cereals.  I love Gerber cereal because all of the variations have the amount of iron that she needs and that's incredibly important to me!

I've used this with all 4 of my kids. Easy to digest and gentle on the belly. I usually mix it with a fruit type baby food as they get older to thicken it up. They love it and it keeps their tummy full longer. It is a bit thick so requires more formula/milk when you mix it.

This is good for my baby and he loves it. Especially when I mix bananas and Apple sauce in it. It may be a little pricey but it's good for them and easy to use. Gerber® Single Grain Baby Cereal | Oatmeal
