  • 5-6 months I think. We only tried it a couple times but it didn't help anything so we stopped.

  • You DON'T... unless directed to by a physician for treating reflux. Cereal in a bottle is a choking risk.

    Cereal itself isn't needed at all... when you introduce solids you can start with something that actually tastes good. Like banana.

  • I did it at 3 months... just make sure the formula is very thin, never use enough to make the fluid thick. I did it with both my kids b/c they were born at almost 9 & 10 lbs and NEEDED more then the formula could provide. They were flat out hungry!!
