    I've read that oatmeal cereal is easily digested than the rice cereal, although for a baby so little Keep in mind, that breast milk or formula provides everything your baby needs until they are 4 to 6 months old. Introducing cereal earlier than that puts them at a higher risk for allergies.
      Yes! My son has had it for a long while now! It really does help. Just use as little as you need until it works through the night or whatever makes you most comfortable. My son's body accepts it with no problem. You just have to listen to what your baby's body tells you!
