  • Yes, you can definitely mix baby food in it. baby formula. Breast milk. Even a little juice.

  • no, I wouldn't add baby food to the bottle, have you tried a little cearl by itself? make it soupy! I would talk to the doc about it, babies are SO different maybe a formula change is in order, I always err on the side of caution!

  • Hi,
    Sure you can change the taste. You can put a little applejuice or white grapefruit juice. That's what I did w/ mine.

  • Bananna cereal is good too.

  • Do not put cereal in the bottle, or anything else other than formula or breastmilk. If you're talking about the cereal itself, try adding a bit of fruit (stage one or the homemade equivalent) or add a tiny bit of juice.

  • Where does it even SAY that she puts it in the bottle?

  • I am not sure what your question is? If it's she is still hungry give her 8 ounces. I have grandson 4.5 mos old) on 8 oz he does just fine. If she is crying try burbing her after 4 oz and then feed her the rest

  • honestly mama, some babies just aren't ready for solids at four months.
    Some are some aren't.

    We skipped cereal all together and started ours at 4 months on sweet potatos. SHE LOVES THEM.
