Our doctor suggested putting it in her bottle, because she always drank so much formula but obviously wasn't having very solid BM's. So we started giving her Rice Cereal, then her BM's were painfully solid, with help from our doctor we found a happy medium of Oatmeal with the last bottle before bed and Rice with the first bottle in the morning. It works well for her.


My doctor always instructed me to NEVER put cereal in a baby's bottle. When they were ready for cereal, they should be eating it off of a spoon. So that is what I did. I would mix a little formula or breastmilk with the cereal and feed them from a spoon.
