  • I put the cereal into the bottle. Not a lot just a little. She loves it. I also started giving her bitter biscuts in the little net thing. She just sits and chews on it. She feel asleep with eating it the other day.

  • IMO I would not start cereal until 6 months when tehir bellies are a little more advanced....if you start at 4 month you might be on here again wondering why your baby is constipated....I have seen it. Boob or formula for 6 months is my honest answer. Oatmeal is easier to digest than rice. Rice is just a filler.

  • You can do whatever you feel is best, but the current recommendation by the AAP is nothing other then breasmilk or formula for at least the first 6 mos.
