For those of you whose babies are currently eating cereal and their bottles I was just wondering what your schedule is. We will be introducing cereal to my dd soon and I was just curious to see what everyone's schedule is for their lo with bottles and cereal after time. At first, do you just give it to them once a day and then work up to morning and night?

cereal in the morning and at night or you could do it in the mornings only and work your way to two times a day. It is best not to start at night just because if they are allergic to the cereal it's hard to identify potential problems at night. my dd is eating 3 solid meals a day and bottles and with her solid meals I give her cereal mixed with her breakfast and her dinner.

my dd is now 7yrs old but when i was weaning her she had cereal and bottle of milk in morning then that was dropped to a beaker of tea when she was a little older. she would have lunch with water or a baby juice, sometimes a milk in afternoon then proper evening meal with water/juice and then bottle of milk before bed. i think its a case of drop a bottle with each meal they start having. my dd loved her tea so she would end up having a bottle of tea to go to bed with. she used to have a few snacks in between meals. she was really easy to wean hope i can do the same with the one im carrying now. a few ppl i know used to put baby rusk in bottle of an evening but its not something i ever tried myself. good luck xx

i started giving my son cereal in his bottle at 4 months. But just at night. Then around 5 months, i was giving it to him for breakfast. He would never eat enough cereal to make it where he didnt need a bottle. So about half a hour after, i would feed him a bottle. Mix it with a little fruit...mmmgood. :) I would do it lke that for a week or so...see if she does good with it. Good luck

Well, for me it came as a shock.....we introduced Mason to cereal at 3 1/2 months (recommended by the GI) because he normally ate every 3-4 hours (32 ounces a day) but was getting really hungry in between. We gave his cereal in between bottles as he could not handle all the formula plus solids in one sitting. At 5 months it is still the same. He can handle the formula and solids togetehr but can't make it 3 hours that way........so het gets a bottle every 3-04 hours and solids in between. It drives me batty as all I ever do is feed him, lol. Makes for a fun time when you are out on the town ~sarcasm~.

P.S. he eats solids 3 times per day at this point.
