I agree don't do cereal in a bottle teach the kid to eat. And breastfeeding will not sustain a child for forever, my kids were exclusively bfed until 6 months then we started cereal and jar food. Still breast feed until they were over 18 months. I hope that helped. GL

What makes her think that? If he's just eating frequently, it's a growth spurt and NORMAL. You shouldn't start solids before 6 months, you should start something naturally healthy (not those crappy constipating cereals), and you can NOT feed it in a bottle. If he's under 6 months, not sitting up on his own, doesn't have any teeth, and still has the tongue pushing reflex, then he's too young. If he's having enough wet/poopy diapers, there's no need to give him anything but breast milk. Tell her to check out Breastfeeding Moms.

Since it is your nephew then if he is at least 4 month then you can start with rice cereal and see if he can digest it. Mine couldn't until 6 months. Skip the bottle more hassle then it is worth. My oldest nursed 40 min each hour 14 hours of the day for 3 months, my youngest nursed every 3 hours round the clock for 3 months. So go with the flow and feed the child as much and as often as the child needs. If he is old enough then start teaching him to eat. I know I was thrilled when my oldest was able to eat at 6 months, we both needed the break. GL, I hope that you sister figures out something that helps.
