Baby cereal

My daughter is 2 months old. I formula feed her but it's not enough. She hates to be burped between feedings she likes to drink a whole 4 to 5 ounces straight then get burped but if she does she'll spit up and choke and it comes out her mouth and nose. I'm thinking of putting a little rice cereal in her botyle just so she can get full a little more. She's really restless right now i just gave her a long bath and she just had 6 ounces of milk with burping in between every 2 ounces she drink. I was trying to wait until she was at least 3 months but i don't think she or i can wait that long:(

Yup! And you should hold off on foods for as long as possible. Cereal is a low nutritional filler. I wait until 6 months to give any solids and it's always straight to veggies. If you do cereal it should be whole grain only, but 2 months is waaaay too young in my opinion.

Unless your ped recommends it and gives advice...NEVER put cereal in your baby's bottle.  Cereal is a spoon food.
