Hi, just wondering how much cereal your lo's ate when you first started cereal, and whether you started with rice or oatmeal and at what age you started it. Ds is 3 months and is always hungry and acting like he's ready so I may try starting him a bit early. What was your schedule like? Did you feed just once a day at night before thier bedtime bottle or what?

My dd only ate a couple of small spoonfuls at first. You have to remember that babies tummys are very small and just a few spoonfuls (baby spoonfuls) goes a long way to fill them up in addition to the formula or b___st milk they take it.....

my ds is 4 months on the 24th and i just started him yesterday on rice cereal. i made 1 tbs and he ate almost the whole thing. I do it in the morning inbetween feedings as a extra meal. i did noticed he did go 4 hrs without wanting a bottle after all together and i think that played in effect to his night wakes. I guess he had to make up for his lost calories. he ate a lot last night, 3 wakes and 7 oz each time! I don't know if that is a sign that he's not redy or what?

well we started last night, ds did really well with the spoon feeding. I was surprised. He ate about 2 tbs. then had his bath, then drank 3.5 oz of formula. He slept his usual 5.5 hrs (9-2:30) then drank 3.5 oz more and slept till 5:30 had another 3oz and was up every 45 min's after that till I finally got up with him at 7:30. those last few wakes are very frustrating. But I think he's doing pretty good. Does this sound good or normal to you mom's that have already done this???
