I've started her off with just a couple of spoonfuls in the morning. Now that I know she likes it and has no reacton to it, how much and how many times a day do I give it to her?

at 4 months i started my son on 1 cereal feeding a day and now that he is 6 months i am feeding it to him twice a day getting ready to work it up to 3 times... i give him about half a baby food jar worth of cereal and 1/3 jar of baby food each meal but then I'll fill him up the rest of the way with milk when/if he is still hungry

I feed my son 3 TBSP at night with his dinner (veggies) only. In the morning he has oatmeal (3 TBSP) for breakfast with fruit.

My son gets rice 3 times a day with his jarred food. I started him off with just a little and kept adding more. He also is breast fed.

For me, I give my baby girl the 1 teaspoon of cereal and mix it with 4 teaspoons of formula once a day for 2 weeks, just so that she can get use to it. Then, I'll give her more and more often. You can also mix baby food with the cereal to give the baby more variety.

My daughter eats cereal once a day. I mix it with a jar of her food so it is the consistency of mashed potatoes.

I feed him 2 times a day. A couple of spoons in the morning and do the same in the evening right after his last fed before bed
