Oatmeal is a perfect, versatile ingredient to serve babies. Here are two simple ways to prepare it!
I like to use quick oats for BLW oatmeal, but I rarely have them on hand. I pulse whole oats about 4-5 times until they look right. You can easily use whole oats though.
Note: often, storebought infant cereals are fortified with iron, a nutrient that babies start to lack around 6 months. A homemade variety will not include this, so make sure you look for other sources of iron for baby.
You can easily mix with a natural iron source, like a spinach puree, lentils, or quinoa or talk to your pediatrician about adding an infant iront supplement.
