Baby Breakfast

I usually give Peyton a banana mixed with yogurt, oatmeal baby cereal and flax seed. I like to use Stonyfield Farm Organic Yo Baby yogurt. You can get it plain, mixed with cereal and fruit or flavored. I've been giving it to him because it's made with whole milk. My pediatrician suggested whole milk yogurt to see if we might be able get him to gain some weight. I think that he's just meant to be thin like Cameron, but I'm giving it a try. I was almost out of the baby cereal, so I tried something that I don't know why I haven't tried before. I just used quick oats and ground them in my coffee grinder. Basically I made an oatmeal flour. It ground up to the same consistency as the boxed stuff and mixed up just as well. There were no complaints from Peyton. So, maybe this is what I'll do from now on.
