I started my son on cereal at 4 months and just introduced veggies 2 weeks ago. He absolutley loves both! I was feeding him 2 oz of breastmilk with rice cereal, just making it thick enough for him, almost 1/4 cup, once a day and 2 oz of a homemade veggie, either carrots or squash, once a day as well. And it seemed that his poop was getting pretty thick and going a couple times a day (which is unusual for him.) He is nursing the same he had always been but I can't tell if he is getting the same amount of milk and each feeding. He seems full and content so the only problem that concerned me was his poop, and he may be straining a little when he goes. I have since dropped the veggies and just did the rice cereal and thats seemed to improve it. How often do you give you babies veggies? rice cereal? How much milk are they drinking in addition to that?
