Maybe try the baby cereal or oatmeal first? You can mix it with formula. I would keep it simple for another month or two, their bellies upset easy at that age and you want to make sure he is getting enough formula.

def not he is too young! talk to your doc.. he may not b hungry every time your feeding him try giving him a pacifier or play with him to pre occupy him and what u say he is drinking is perfect! and he is sleeping great! why do u see a problem with this?  he sounds great feed him milk only! please dont give this lil baby food yet he isnt ready yet and his lil tummy isnt either.. u can maybe try a lil cereal or oatmeal at 4-5 months but never before then if you have any questions feel free to msg me

I had heard that 4 months is the bare minimum, but it is best to wait as close to 6 months as possible. So DD1 was 5.5 months before I caved and gave her some, DD2 was 6 months when she started. I skip the cereals and started with veggies, then fruit. Within a month of offering purees she was also having finger food.

Not until 6 months. That is what the ped doctors say

Your doctor is extremely uneducated if he ok's rice cereal for a newborn and baby food for a 3 month old. So to answer your question, no I don't think you should feed your 3 month old baby food.

Cereal is junk. Baby is NOT able to digest it properly. They say 6 months, can sit unsupported, and they lose their tongue thrust. I'd wait mama.
