Quoting Kyrissa:

When I make Emilys bottle I put a spoon full of rice cereal into it, she used to spit up a lot and this seemed to help with the problem. I was also told that the rice cereal is the easiest thing on their stomach so I would suggest to stick with the rice. If you do decide to put some in the bottle you may have to make the hole in the nipple bigger depending on how much you put into the bottle


Rice in a bottle is a choking hazard ESPECIALLY! if you made the nipple hole larger. They make the holes that small for a reason; for LIQUIDS ONLY to pass through them and for the flow to be slower so your little one learns to breath and swallow! Would you want to eat rice out of a bottle??? - Not only is it a choking hazard, there is LITTLE nutritional value in it. Babies only need breast milk or formula the first year!(not advocating, just stating facts) Rice is a food and is to help develop their skills of eating with utensils!



 



 



Tonya- keep trying. Use breastmilk if you can (it's sweeter); she may take to it easier. If it continues, maybe wait a week and try again! GOOD LUCK. She'll get it, don't worry!

She may not be ready for solids yet. Wait a few days or a week then try again. Just because she hits the 4 months mark doesn't mean she has to have solids. Breastmilk or formula is all she needs until 6 months. Try not to stress too much about it and if you're still concerned, talk to your pediatrician :)
