  • It can cause allergies later on if you start them on food too early now, even if they don't have any immediate reactions. I am going through this right now with my oldest, he has the worst allergies and skin problems of all of my kids. The younger 2 I waited til 4 months and 6 months respectively to start them on solids. But if you have a pediatrician then I would ask them.

  • Rice Rusk, like rice cereal and no I would not give an 11 week old rusk. Just my opinion

  • Uh, she is no where near the age of eating food dor her belly. And feeding it to her at night won't help her sleep. It might make her stomach hurt and give her gas. Which means you will get less sleep.

  • Sorry, nothing but breastmilk till six months. And cereal does NOT make them can even make them weake MORE.

    Drop that which is not strictly needed for survival. It'll wait. Sleep when she does.

  • Sorry but you really shouldn't give a baby cereal or food until at least 4 to 6 months depending on what your pedi says. Trust me the nights will get better with time my son is almost 2 and I miss the late night feedings and him needing me for everything. If you ever need anyone to talk to we are all here to listen.

  • Babies wake up. Giving them rice cereal won't change that. Sleep when she sleeps, rest when you can, let the chores go for a while.

    We ALL feel tired. It's the hazard of having a baby in a modern world.
