This weekend Emma and I took a trip to Target to pick up a few essentials. Being a busy mom, I love the convenience of a store that has everything we need in one place. I also love that I can find everything I need for Emma in the Target baby aisle. On this trip is was the Gerber Cereal we needed, some fruit purees, my favorite dry shampoo and groceries. Target is my happy place.
One of my favorite parenting memories with both girls has been starting solids. Even better that my parents were with us for both firsts. We decided to start feeding Emma solids at 5 1/2 months while staying with my parents in California this summer. As a supported sitter, Emma started with infant oatmeal cereal in hopes to help with the severe reflux she was struggling with. In our case medication alone wasn't working. Adding infant cereals like Gerber Oatmeal Cereal has.
The reason we chose Gerber Cereals was Emma's need for iron. Babies triple their birth weight in the first year and getting proper nutrients is essential. Even with breastfeeding I know she doesn't get everything she needs to support growth and brain development. 1 out of 9 babies are not getting enough iron, that is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends feeding your baby iron-rich infant cereal or meat twice a day to meet their daily iron needs.
What I love about Gerber Cereal:
- Gerber cereals are the #1 source of Iron
- Super Easy pour spout!
- 2 servings of Gerber Cereal has 90% of baby's daily iron needs
- Each nutrient-rich bowl provides a VitaBlocks® blend of six B Vitamins, Vitamins E and C, Iron, Zinc and Calcium for healthy growth and development
- BPA free packaging
In addition to our shopping trip to Target being quick and convenient, I also saved money on the items I was already purchasing. Gerber Baby cereals were easily found in the baby aisle along with baby foods and diapers. With almost no effort, I also saved 10% on Gerber Cereals using this coupon in the Cartwheel app. If you don't already have Cartwheel and shop at Target, get it here today. Cartwheel is a must have money saving app!
This morning I made Emma her favorite breakfast with the Gerber Oatmeal Cereal we picked up at Target. She loves her Gerber Oatmeal Cereal mixed with Gerber Organics Mango Banana. I add a little formula or water to give it a smooth texture. It is a guaranteed winning baby breakfast in our home.
With dinner, Gerber Cereals like rice easily mix into vegetable and meat purees. Gerber has a variety of baby cereals that will not only satisfy your baby's tastes but also give you peace of mind as a mom knowing you are giving your healthy and happy baby what she needs to meed her developmental needs.
