  • My little guy is 5 1/2 months - we do 2 tablespoons of rice cereal during the day and 3 tablespoons of oatmeal at night and I mix it with about 1-2 oz of formula to get the right consistency...

  • depends on how old he is and how solid he can take it. I would put equal part of each and thick or fr thin from there.

  • I'd start with a couple tablespoons of cereal and add milk (or formula or juice) until you get to the consistency of apple sauce. It's been so long, I can't remember what that is...think 3:1, but don't quote me on that.

  • I never measured it, just put some cereal in the bowl and then added water little by little until it was the right consistency.

  • I never measured, pour it in the bowl, add warm formula until it is the thickness he likes. Let him eat till he is done.
