    DD's on cereal already.

    Advertisements
    At her two month check up Monday, her ped said it was time to start her on cereal. He said to put it in her bottle before bed.

    So I just fed her her first cereal bottle She's growing up too fast.

    I's sad

    Why did he say to put cereal in her bottle? Does she have reflux?

    She's gaining weight really fast and she just wants to eat and eat and eat all day long. He said that the cereal added to her bottle would fill her up faster so she wouldn't be getting as many calories as she was. I was surprised. I didn't expect to start her on cereal until at least 4-5 months.

    That's really weird.. they usually say don't even think about starting cereal until they are able to take it from a spoon.. my pedi said don't start introducing it til 6 months, the earliest. To each their own though I guess.

    as long as the cereal doesn't make the formula milkshake thick I think it is fine. You just want to make sure it isn't clumpy so baby doesn't choke on it.

    Yeah, that's what he said.. I'm SO glad I only have to do it before bed though, because she HATES it. At least she did last night It took forever to feed her because she just did not want it at all.

    I think that is terrible advice from a DR.

    If the DR really thinks its that important for her to have cereal that is fine but it should be from a spoon. Not in the bottle.

    I hope she adjust to the new bottles for you. If she doesn't like it, I wouldn't push the issue.

    I agree. Cereal in a bottle is a choking hazard. Some doctors amaze me.
