My 2 month old daughter is up to 6oz of formula. I wanted to use cereal so she wasnt eating so much. Would it be ok to put it in her bottle? If so how much should I add?

NEVER until at least 4 months preferably 6 months. I will never understand why anyone would voluntarily introduce those risks to an otherwise healthy baby. BTW you NEVER put cereal in a bottle EVER!!

She should have ONLY formula until AT LEAST 6 months. Then, only if she really is capable of eating it off the spoon. She should be sitting unsupported, no longer have the tongue thrust reflex. NEVER in their bottle. It poses a choking risk and it will NOT fill them up. Their ONLY nutrition should come from formula, any foods are simply for practice. If fact, your never have to spoon feed baby if you wait until she is big enough to eat finger foods. Giving anything besides formula before at least 6 months poses major health risks to baby and they may not be noticeable until later on.

cherylc1962~ Karo should NEVER be given to infants. Karo may contain botulism which can be deadly in infants. Karo is an outdated and dangerous method that is very risky and no longer recommended!
