I know a friend who started giving her 3 week old pablum only like 3 tsp a day. how is your sons weight? i started my daughter on rice cereal for brekfast only at 4 months. after doing that for a month i added baby food as her supper. a month after doing that, i added in lunch, now at 7 months she has her brekfast when she wakes up of a cereal and fruit mix, lunch at noon with a vegitable, snack at 3pm of fruit and supper at 6:30 of vegitable or vegitable and meet.. every baby is different i guess. but doctors now a days tell us to never give our babies pablum in their bottles. if your baby can swallow the food and seems to keep his weight normal and not be gaining exsessivly then I think your okay. a Baby wouldnt eat if it wasnt hungry right........

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Bottles are supposed to be for milk, and very rarely water, only and 3 months is still a bit young for babies digestive system to be able to tolerate baby food.
Is there a reason you are adding rice to his bottle?

That seems like a lot of solids for a 15 week old. Is there a reason you are putting it in his bottle, it's really not reccommended.
