Just to be clear I'm not looking for a debate on feeding cereal to infants in bottles. Our pediatrician suggested one teaspoon in her bottle at bedtime so help her sleep through the night. So I got these nipples to go on her regular bottles supposedly for cereal to be able to pass through. When I tried to feed her with one of those, it took her three times longer just to drink a half ounce. Has anyone else tried these nipples? Did they work for you baby?

Your doctor recommended putting cereal in a bottle for sleeping purposes? **bangs head against wall** It would be great if doctors were required to take refresher courses. It would eliminate so many problems our children are encountering.

"I can't imagine what the hell kind of problems the children are acquring from eating cereal."
You may want to educate yourself on the problems that children DO acquire from early introduction of solids. There are many, unfortunately. If you haven't looked into the consequences I would truly do yourself and baby a favor and read a few articles.
