Some people do it thinking or hoping that it will make their baby sleep longer at night and they think it's a good way to introduce solid foods. I personally have never done it and never would. I breastfeed my babies so it never even came up with us. I have heard from mothers who have done this that it didn't actually help their kids sleep longer anyways. I have heard from doctors that it is a choking hazard and when I take my kids for their immunizations, the nurses ask me if I am doing it and when I say "no", they say "that's good". I think that if your child is ready to be introduced to solid foods, then they should be able to eat it from a spoon, even if a bit messy at first. What do you think? Did any of you put rice cereal in bottles?
