Do they not wake up for a feed?
My mum and sisters keep telling me this but then I read that it's not the case. My babies 4months. I don't plan on giving her solids until 6 months but I wonder if it actually does make them sleep longer?

cDo what you feel comfortable with. I started cereal at 4 1/2 months and veggies and fruit at 6 months. In my experience it really did help them sleep when they started having cereal. Research it and decide if you want to wait or not.

I don't think a little cereal is gonna hurt the belly at all. No I would not give my child a bowl of beans lets say or mash potatoes with gravy on them at night but cereal why not. Do what you feel is best for your child...

LOTS of research has been done on this and it does NOT help them sleep longer at night. When people say it helped their kids it was probably a coincidence. "I don't think a little cereal is gonna hurt the belly at all" if their intestines are not mature enough it CAN hurt them. Check out the info at Will giving formula or solids at night help baby to sleep better?
