The first night trying cereal was a disaster. We waited a few minutes to long so he was hungry and wanted to eat NOW! He was crying to hard to even try cereal so we just put it in his bottle. He didn't even seem to notice. The second time that we tried, we made sure we tried before he got hungry. At first, he didn't know what to think as you can see by the first picture. By the last picture you can see that he was enjoying his cereal but we made a total mess. I guess it will get better with time. I have noticed since we started cereal that different times during the day, he will just start chewing like he is practicing eating his cereal.
