Camden will be 4 months in 4 days, and it is so obvious that he is ready for rice cereal. He can sit up with just a pillow behind him and the few times I have tried to feed him cereal with a spoon, he doesn't puth of it out of his mouth (meaning the reflex is gone) and he "chews" and swallows it. And I can tell he needs something more to eat than just formula, because after several weeks of sleeping from 9-5, he has suddenly started waking up at 2 for a bottle and the paci doesn't sooth him back to sleep. So I have started educating myself by reading about introducing solids, and every single thing I read says "Don't put cereal in the bottle", but they never say why. Does anyone know the reason for this?
