my son is 3months 2 weeks and just started rice cereal. most people say nothing but formula till 6 months but it because they dont want the baby to miss out on nutrents in the formula. i just picked a rice cereal that has use mix with formula. i mix up a total of 4oz of formula and add one fromula scoop of cereal. shake well and feed. i'm using a medium flow nipple. he even had a thicker mix that was like oatmeal tonight. if you try the thicker mix it will be messy!! if he gives you dirty looks its because its new to him. some babies this age still have the weird toung reflex its a "rule" that if he spits out half the bit or more dont force the suject but dont give up try a bite or 2 a day. but dont rush and start making cereal part of every meal. sometime their little bowels just arent ready for it yet, so watch his stool for any major diffrents if so then call your doc and ask to take to a nurse. tell then haw much formula he has been eating and your doc can tell you if you just need to give him more time to ajust or if it to early. p.s. giving him a taste of apple sauce, yogart, or even runny potatos. just dip your finger in it and let him taste that.
