  • I'm hoping you mean formula, and no it is not advised

  • your not supposed to these days. 17 years ago it was just fine, but I guess these days babys choke on cereal when it's in formula. 4-6 months is when your can introduce foods

  • I would avoid it... in a few month go ahead and introduce it to your baby by spoon

  • ask the pediatrician they usually only suggest it when baby has reflux

  • No. Wait until she turns 5 months and feed it with a spoon. It doesn't help them sleep through the night. It will make her constipated, then you will have to start fruit. She is too young for all that.

  • Never put cereal in a child's milk unless it is under doctor's orders.

  • When my 3 were babies I was told no cereal until the baby was 4-6 months old. I suggest you hold off on the cereal and just keep feeding baby formula/breastmilk and at the next Doctor appointment ask your baby's doctor when would be a good time to introduce cereal.

  • grain is one of the LAST things you introduce to a baby, they can't even digest it.

    Answer by ObbyDobbie at 3:15 PM on Nov. 29, 2010

  • Can you - yes. Should you? NO. All baby needs at this point in life is milk - breast or formula. Nothing more. Cereal is a filled that does nothing nutritionally.

    Yes, years ago they introduced solids much earlier. They also didn't have medications for infant reflux, if a doc believed it existed, so they thickened baby's milk.

    My pediatrician said that I will have at least 18 years to feed my baby, why rush it.
