Cereal Question

jb - June 29

For about a week now I have been giving my dd rice cereal. She is about 4 1/2 months old. She has been doing just great. She loves the stuff (my dog won't even touch it!!). Anyhow, I wonder how much I should give her. Her Dr. said to give one teaspoon mixed with apple juice or formula 1-2 times a day. Since she loves the stuff I have been giving it to her 2 times a day. I usually give it to her after she has had a bottle. (she eats about 24-28 ounces a day...and she is a 15.5 pound girl) After the bottle and the rice, she has a hissy fit like she wants more. I would be happy to give her more, but I don't want to overfeed her. How much rice should I give her? Thanks in advance for your input/help!! :-)

I'd like to know too. I give my baby oatmeal at night about 2 or 3 tablespoons and she eats all of it. Should I give her more in the morning too? Good question jb.

I always give Mason however much he wants. :)......rice cereal can cause sonstipation though so be on the lookout for that.

maybe try giving it to her the other way around (rice and then bottle). that way it gives her sometime for the rice to settle in her tummy. cuz you know how when you eat something you really really like and you just keep eating it and don't realize that you're full till 5 minutes after you've over-stuffed yourself?... haha, maybe she just loves the rice cereal that much.. i dunno, just a thought :)
