My baby is 3.5 months now. Her last pediatrician visit was about a month ago, and she doesn't have another one until August. She weighed about 12.5 pounds, and was already holding her head up to look around. She can now roll from her stomach to her back, and can live her body up for about a minute at a time before she goes back to the ground. I had asked the Pedi then if I could start her on cereal before our next visit in August, and he said it was up to her.
Formula doesn't seem to be enough. She is eating 8-10 ounces at each feeding and seems crabby. I am not looking to use it to put her to sleep because she sleeps from about 10 pm to 7 am. I am just hoping to make her full.
I have both Gerber brand rice/barley cereal, as well as Beech brand rice/barley cereal. I even have a mixed fruit rice cereal made by Gerbers. The directions say to mix 1 tbsp cereal w/ 4tbsp milk.
When did you start? On what?
