My son who just turned a month is on cereal. (not by my choice might i add) i've heard its bad to put babies on cereal early. until etleast 4-6 months. but my son has acid reflux and the doctors insist on putting cereal in his formula to help keep it down. is this going to cause problems for my son later down the road? and is there such a thing called basil rice cereal? thats what the doctor recommended because i told them he was getting a belly ach after the regalur rice cereal but i can't find it anywhere!Answer Question

I am in your shoes. My daughter has acid reflux too, and it is really bad. My doctor suggested cereal in the bottle too. I was pretty reluctant but broke down and tried it. It didn't work, she had a hard time drinking it and kept spitting it out. Elevating the crib mattress is good for night, but if your son is anything like my daughter, she is unhappy all the time. Give the cereal a try, I don't think it will cause problems later, some people say it increases the chance of allergies. My mom and all my aunts and MIL all had their kids on cereal at a month and none of us have any allergies. Good luck.
