First time trying Rice Cereal

So tonight was PJ’s first time trying rice cereal.  He loved the spoon but didn’t like the cereal very much.  He wasn’t spitting it out like his brothers did, I was worried that his tongue might automatically spit it out.  But he grimaced and cried.  I’m not sure if it’s the taste or the texture.  It’s not uncommon for babies with Down Syndrome to have sensory problems so it could be the texture.  If that’s the case it’s good to keep trying so that his mouth gets used to it. Either way, eating rice cereal right now is not about nourishment as much as it is about learning to eat and using a spoon.   We’ll try again tomorrow!!!!
