There seems to be controversy as to when and if to introduce cereal to baby. We did use it with a couple of ours and we did so a little bit at a time. I would use a bit of breast milk to mix with the cereal. We slowly increased the cereal over time. Giving too much too soon can cause digestion problems, even constipation, as well as reduce the amount of breast milk baby takes in. The idea is to slowly introduce it not replace a nursing session or bottle of formula.
