  • A really great oatmeal. My baby enjoys the taste and it smells pleasant too. May 15, 2024

  • We used to mix this with applesauce and breast milk for both kid’s breakfast when starting foods. It was always a hit and the price is acceptable. Nov 03, 2023

  • Baby's favourite breakfast cereal. We typically add some sort of fruit in but it's good without as well! Sep 14, 2023

  • I recently started my baby on this (pediatrician recommended) he enjoys it and eats it pretty good. He definitely prefers this flavor over the rice flavored option. Sep 05, 2023

  • Great for starting out and for thickening baby food that is too runny. But I just found out about the metal shavings thing and now I’m nervous. May 09, 2023

  • This cereal is great to add to purees as you gradually thicken the food. We also add it often to formula bottles especially late night ones for longer sleep windows. May 02, 2023

  • My son loved this! Until I heard about the heavy metals… Mar 12, 2023

  • My daughter really enjoys this oatmeal. I do mix it with a fruit puree to sweeten it up though. Jan 05, 2023

  • Super convenient as a quick breakfast item. Just mix with formula or breastmilk and it’s ready. We liked to add some mashed up fruit once babies were eating solids. Babies loved it. Jul 22, 2022

  • Used this for all 5 kids! They all loved it and it is so simple to make. It grows with the child and has for supported sitter, sitter, etc. it also comes in other flavors which is awesome. Jul 13, 2022

    This was great when I needed to thicken up my baby’s formula. I had to cut a larger hole in the nipple to allow for it to flow, but it worked well after that! Apr 07, 2022

  • Regret will never buy again! Was recalled for metal shavings in product ! And when we checked ares sure enough , it was in the food ! Sep 09, 2021

    We added this to our homemade baby food to make sure our daughter got enough iron and still use it today. She refuses to eat anything until she has her oatmeal in the morning. May 29, 2021

  • My son can’t eat this cereal fast enough! A way better alternative to the rice cereal. May 26, 2021

  • Pros: For use as a solid it is great. Cons: For use as an additive to baby bottles it does not dissolve and will gather at the bottem of the bottle. May 23, 2021

  • My kiddos love it when I add this oatmeal to their pureed foods. It's easy to digest and is a good source of iron. Apr 08, 2021

    My five month old has loved this as his first food. He likes the banana flavor. It mixes well with breastmilk. It is easy to pour and easy to store. Nov 19, 2020

  • Love Gerber oatmeal! Awesome first foods for baby, great for in between baby food and formula. These give baby something new, and fill the tummies better! The various flavors are also great! Oct 31, 2020

  • When I was starting my daughter on solids I would put some oatmeal cereal in a bowl and mix it with formula. She would gobble it up and smack her lips Oct 19, 2020

    My son couldn't handle the rice version of this. He would just cry after eating. I switched to the oatmeal and he is able to tolerate it much better. Oct 10, 2020

    So versatile of what it can be mixed with or used on its own. Oct 22, 2019

    This was her second cereal. I mix it with breasmilk. She seems to like it. Sometimes I add a little peanut butter in. I have the cereals also in rice, multigrain, whole wheat. Oct 04, 2019

  • This was one of my sons favorite cereals. I mixed with different foods to thicken it up and add flavor, it kept him full for a long time. Will definitely use with my next baby in October. Easy to make Jul 05, 2019

  • We use this cereal to help thicken our baby's formula. He has a reflux so this is what helps him. He seems to like the flavor of the oatmeal. May 29, 2019

  • My youngest loves this oatmeal, especially mixed with apple butter. I have just started cutting up pieces of banana and adding that in to switch up the consistency as he is getting a little older May 12, 2019
