  • At 4 months I'd start with once a day. I found the best time to feed cereal was in the evening but an hour or so before bed so it has time to settle. Have you checked with the doctor about starting solids? I am one of those moms that thinks you should feed a hungry baby at all times but I know the recomended age is closer to six months.

  • I did once a day. At 4 months, they could bearly eat anyway. More of a fun thing for baby. I did it in the afternoons since it was the only time I had time.
