I touched a little bit last week on some options for thickening liquids safely to make them easier for some preemies to swallow.
If your baby has swallowing issues, you'll likely thicken milk or formula with baby cereal. It's relatively inexpensive, accessible, and easily digested. You'll go through a LOT of it.
I found it a hassle to try to pour from those boxes into a tablespoon to measure effectively.
I ended up transferring the cereal into a clean, dry, empty powdered creamer container. The opening was perfect for pouring accurately and it was sturdy enough to toss in a diaper bag when we were on the move.
