I have a 4 1/2mo. old and his pediatrician has suggested beginning to add cereal (acid reflux problems). So far, he loves it. However, I'm having trouble figuring out exactly how to add in the cereal to his daily schedule. I don't want to over feed him, since he is already in the 80% for weight, but I also want him to eat if he is hungry. Right now, I feed him cereal once a day normally at night and then nurse him partially afterwards. I am also starting to wein him from BF so at 6mo he is on bottle only. So currently, he gets one 6oz formula bottle a day, is fed about every 4hrs. Can anyone suggest what his "schedule" should look like with this new cereal & weining process?
