I start putting cereal & bananas in my DS milk @ 3 1/2 weeks old. His Doctor suggest that we should if he wasn't getting full and it worked wonders but we only gave him it twice a day. We may do the same with our next if we have another. DS is a year old so another child is out the question for now though





*EDIT: IT'S BABY BANANAS (in a jar lol) 1 TEA SPOON & SAME FOR THE CEREAL (maybe 2 SPOONS FOR THE CEREAL THOUGH :)

Never. First of all my kids don't get bottles at all for the first 6-8 weeks minimum. Second, putting anything in a bottle other than breastmilk or formula is a bad idea at any age. And babies should have NOTHING but formula or breastmilk for a minimum of 4-6 months.

 2 months I put in cereal to make it thicker and keep him full longer. He would get up every hour to eat this kept him sleeping for almost 2 1/2 hours at a time at night.

6 weeks, with no help and him waking every 1 1/2 -2 hours it was to much, i was falling asleep while feeding him, so one night i added banana to his bottle and we slept for 5 hours. It was awsome. i only did it at night, so i could get some good sleep.
