Hi, im new here and i am also a new mother. My daughter is 19weeks old and is still waking up every three hours taking 4oz. Ive tried to boost her up to 5oz during the day but she just ends up spittin up alot so i dont think shes ready for 5oz. My question is when starting her on rice cereal do i put it in her bubba at night or do i spoon feed her? Ive had some friends say that people dont recommend putting it in the bubba anymore and that i should spoon feed her but then i have some friends who say jus to put it in the bubba. She has never had anything but formula so i want to make sure i do this the right way when starting her on cereal but i dont know what to do or how to do it. Her pediatrition says not to start her on cereal til shes 6 months but shes ALWAYS hungry and will not sleep thru the night, shes up EVERY 3 hours. ive seen in other conversations that some of you guys start your children on cereal at 4 months. Please help im confused!
