When do you start feeding your baby cereal with a spoon? And baby food? My daughter is 3 months old, and is ALWAYS hungry. She will only take 4 ounces of formula at a time, but an hour later she's hungry again. I do give her cereal at night before bedtime, and she tolerates it really well.

She does have severe acid reflux so I don't know if that affects anything.

  • At three months she is probably going through a growth spurt, just give her the extra bottles.

  • My DS is 7 months and still has not started solids. He is EBF though, so if he is hungry, he nurses. My oldest didn't start any type of solid until 6 months, and then only a taste here and they, until 6 months ALL nutirtion should come from BM or formula.
