Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has had their doctor tell them to try this when making up bottles for their babies. I took my 4.5 month old daughter to the doctor's today and I mentioned to him that she is still only going 3 hours in between feedings. He suggested adding a little more formula and less water to the mixture to make it "thicker" thinking this may help hold her off longer. Does this sound right to you? I am very reluctant to do this since I have read online that this can be dangerous and harmful to babies organs, particularly their kidneys. I have started feeding my daughter rice cereal and was thinking that if I maybe fed this to her twice per day that this could help. She weighs 14lbs 4oz so it is not like she isn't gaining weight. Any advice?
Thanks everyone :)
