  • the baby gerber food is really just for the babies to learn textures of new foods. it is not to replace the formula/breastmilk. im guessing you baby is around 6 months if you are feeding her baby food so she still needs milk 6-8 times i day. make sure you still give your baby milk. they need formula or breastmilk until the are a year old!! i would only give your baby baby food like twice a day as well

  • have the baby finish a bottle FIRST and then try the food. Baby food is IN ADDITION to,not replacing formula/breastmilk

  • Still use the formula/breastmilk. This is where their main source of nutrition comes from. I would mix the cereal with the formula/breastmilk. At first, I would just give the cereal at breakfast and then bottles the rest of the day. Then I added some veggies at lunch and continue with the bottles, etc.
