I attempted to skip the baby cereal phase; however when #wiggydiggy was around 7 months I picked up a box of Beech Nut oatmeal, just to keep on hand "in case of emergencies". I waited a week or so before making a bowl and adding some blueberries for dinner one night. Lil man gobbled it up.....then spit it all up less than an hour later.
At daycare, they had the same problem - spit up all of the cereal within an hour. So we began to use a scoop to thicken up some of the thinner puree's I had made. That worked great until we ran out of the thin puree's. After a month of the box sitting half empty in the pantry, I decided I had to use it up before it went bad. To Pinterest I went!

So far we've used:
