I feed my son cereal in the morning with a spoon as well in the evening. He is drinking 6 oz of milk each time he gets feed but usually do not drink it all, during the day he will drink the 6oz each time he is feed and I think he could drink more - although they do not recomend that they have solids until 6 months I would be feeding my child 8oz every hour by then!!
He was drinking 35-40oz of milk at 10 weeks and this is when I started him on the cereal and he went back to 20-25 oz. He is still gaining weight properly as I know there is not the same nutritional value in cereal as the milk. He is 14 weeks now and is back to 25-30oz a day along with cereal
He is so much more satisfied with the cereal!!! I started with rice and he was fine, last week I tried the oat and he was fussy and waking up more so I went back to the rice again for another while!
Anyone else have this issue??
