  • It's normal at about 3 months for babies to go threw a growth spurt which will cause them to want to eat more. I tried giving my son cereal when he was going threw his and it didn't do anything for him. He was still hungry and constipated. My doctor said that at that age not to give him cereal because his digestive system was not developed enough.
