Thanks, i had a great feeling it was too young, was just curious about when everyone started. Thanks! oh and my bf gets up every now and then but not everyday, He gets up early for work and for me, im off for another 2 weeks but when i go back i dont start till 3pm so i could sleep in. But i do like the idea of shifts YC. I think im going to use your hours and see how it works, cause i do need my sleep at night........THANKS

My baby also has reflux and I just got him the Enfamil A.R. LIPIL. It has added Rice Starch and is pretty thick. I think that it works good. It can be a pain to mix up because of the starch but in the long run, it's worth it.

Hello! My son is now 11 weeks and I have been adding rice cereal since 6 weeks and it works awesome. I use the enfamil A.R. formula and just dump in a bit of the cereal. He rarely spits up at all anymore. We also bought a crib wedge at babies r us. It goes under the sheet and props the baby up a little. Works wonders!!!!!

Hi YC-

I realize it is several months old but I was searching for answers and came across your post. I am in the same position that you were in January. Milk allergy, Zantac for severe reflux, switched to nutramigen but he is spitting up terribly on it. He is 8weeks old. Just wondering if you tried the cereal and how it worked out for you. Any other advise for me? Thanks so much!
