  • I think that if she's healthy, happy, and not losing weight, spit up is just a laundry issue.

  • The cereal could be giving her upset stomach and gas. It's hard to digest. If you stop the cereal and give her regular table food the problem will likely resolve itself. (sometimes babies are just not ready to digest solid foods at that age and it is okay to wait a while and try table food at a later time -- you never need to give jarred food by the way).
