I have an 11 week old daughter who is exclusively breast fed. For the last 3 weeks she has been eating every hour. At first I thought it may be a growth spurt- but I am suprised at how often she still demands to be fed. She is able to hold her head up very well and weighs almost 15 lbs. I am thinking about introducing very diluted rice cereal as an attempt to satiate her for longer times. Any comments or personal experience with starting rice cereal so early are welcome and appreciated. Thank you!
- I do know that she may reject the rice cereal. If this is the case I will not force her to start eating it- just so you all know. :) Thanks again!

Cereal too soon can interfere with sleep patterns and fill your child with calories that should be breastmilk. It can also cause a whole host of medical issues later in life, into adulthood.
From a nutritional standpoint, you need never to feed your baby cereal. Read up on nutrition; your doctor is not a nutritionist, she/he is a treater of diseases.
