Hello...Congratulations on the new little addition to your family.

Use the short grain brown rice.  It is stickier when cooked.
The long grain brown, like the long grain white, cooks up separately
and is best when you are serving rice as in a stirfry.

In response to some other posts about rice...

I always cook the maximum amount of rice my cooker will hold.  That way
I always have left over cold rice and can plan around it.  I can't see
the wisdom of cooking up 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup amounts of rice.

As regards rice cookers, I have had mine for 15 years and it is a Sanyo.
I get about a 1 kernel thickness of rice stuck on the bottom on the
cooker.  I don't see this as a problem.
