I'm surprised @ how many mom's are telling you to put cereal in a bottle, please talk to your Dr first. Dr's usually don't suggest this unless there is a medical problem like acid reflux. My son had acid reflux & my Dr still didn't suggest it. This is an old school method then is antiquated. Babies can have several problems if you give them cereal to early & especially not in their bottle & it may not show up until they're adults. The whole thing about "my grandmother,mother did it" blah,blah,blah...well they also smoked, drank while pregnant & didn't have to use carseats, we know better now! Babies need breastmilk/formula for brain development, help w/ their immune system & give them time for their digestive system to develop. Cereal has very little nutritional value, can cause constipation, gas, belly aches, alergies. If your 2 month old is hungry every hour or two feed them more breastmilk/formula, my son was like that @ 2 months also & trust me before you know it it'll pass & they'll be sleeping thru the night & going much longer between feedings. Enjoy the cuddle time 'cause before you know it they won't want to cuddle much anymore. like I said don't listen to the mom's that are telling you to put cereal in the bottle or even starting cereal just so babies go longer between feedings, 2 months they need to have breastmilk or formula that often 'cause their tummy's are so small...it's perfectly normal for a baby to eat that often & it's our jobs as mother's to give them what they NEED that often! Good luck!

People have been feeding babies cereal in a bottle for many years. I am a mother of three boys and i fed them cereal in a bottle at two months of age due to their large appitites and they are fine. my brother, uncle, dad, and probibly even grandfather ate cereal out of a bottle at a young age and theyare fine. Its just like the whole thing wit cows milk. They say you should not give it to baby till 1 year butwhat did mothers who didnt produce milk do before they invented formula. People blow things way out of proportion theese days.

Lets just make it simple.



Kids don't have scheduals. We do.



Kids will eat when they are hungry and sleep when they are tired. If you follow those 2 rules of thumb, you'll be just fine. All kids are different and so are they when they eat and sleep. It is tiring for Mom, I know. I have 2 boys and 2 girls. I breast fed all of them. The boys till they were 1 yr old, and the girls till they were 2 yrs old. I never gave them anything else but my milk till they were 6 moths old. Mind you babies go through growth spurts, so just feed on demand.



'Kids will eat when they are hungry and sleep when they are tired'.



We'd all feel better and be so much healthier if we as adults could do that. But we can't. Only, because we are tied to scheduals to function in our everyday lives. But way, way back when, that is how it was indeed.



Wild animals do this everyday. Animals are alert, lean and healthy at most.

But we are not wild, we are domesticated.



So to speak.

My baby suddenly started eating more frequently and never seeming satisfied at two month... I thought it was a growth spurt and maybe it was, but it turned out I wasn't drinking enough water. I had gotten really busy and the weather was cold so I just forgot to drink. I started drinking more and her time between feeding doubled, going back to how it was before. Also she was feeding for a much shorter time and very happily! She's breast feed though. Is your baby breast fed or bottle fed? When a baby first has something that isn't breast milk, it changed the bacterial make up of there gut permanently. We have a lot of allergies in our family so I am doing all that I can to keep my baby exclusively on breast milk till 6 months. If your baby has had formula then the bacteria is already changed so maybe you can do whatever. If not, I would try to hold off. Listen to your gut! Mom's often have good gut instincts when it comes to there babies! Good luck with your hungry baby!

If he's hungry, give him more milk. It's too early to start cereals or anything else just yet. Babies go through phases of eating. There will be times when he will eat constantly, and there will be times when he doesn't eat much. He's getting ready for a growth spurt when he's eating a lot... when he doesn't eat much is when he's actually growing (that's what my son's ped. told me).

hi my youngest was like that she just wanted feeding constantly,then threw it all back up because she was full, so although i hated the idea i gave her a dummy (i didnt give one to my older two) it was the best thing to have done for her,she settled down and she became a very chilled baby she still drank a good amount.it's worth trying your baby might not take to it.With my older two i started solids when they were 3 months and they were fine but with Faith i started at 4 months and then i had problems with her holding her poo from the minute they turned solid,till about 6 moths ago (she is 2 now) which now i put it down to her body wasnt ready for solids, it is trial and error you know your baby better than anyone else.

What in the world is 'hungry baby milk'? Are you bottle feeding I'm assuming? He is definitely too young for anything other than a good quality formula or breastmilk. I'm almost done with nursing school and a mom of 2; trust me, I know what I'm talking about when it comes to feeding an infant. He needs to be on a good quality formula, like Enfamil or Nestle Good Start or something, but of course breast milk is best. If you are using formula, make sure you are diluting it properly, exactly as instructions say on the can. Feed him as much as he will eat during each feeding, he will know when to stop eating. Also, he might be fussy in between meals not because he's hungry but because there's some other issue he is trying to communicate.

I would definitely look and see if there is anthing that you can do to fill him... they usuallt say that if he's eating all the time to step it up a notch.... your doctor will know better.... :o) Good Luck!

Right about now he'll be going through a growth spurt,so he'll want to eat more.Also if you are breast feeding make sure you check the latch because even if he looks on he may not be or if formula feeding and your giving four ounces like most pediatricians say to give I as a mom of six can tell you they never wanted only four ounces,my advice would to let him eat as much as he can take,which may only be half an ounce more or five to six ounces.I also have found that boy are instinctively more hungry than girls.Never give anything but milk until at least four months.

this is called "cluster feeding" and it is perfectly normal, try to get him on a schedule. feed him all he wants to eat and then wait about an hour and a half - two hours befor feeding him again, if hes really upset than try a soother. also try feeding alot right befor nap time so he sleeps for a while and gets used to feedings coming a couple of hours apart. If you get him on rice cereal than that is all he will want to eat and he will probably become overweight, so I wouldnt recommend it, also never put rice cereal in their bottle, but dont take it from me, ask your doctor. I hope this helps you, good luck :)

From what I've read and been told by my pediatrician and WIC nurses, wait until your baby is of developmental age, not chronological age. This is due to every baby developing differently, that's why they usually say children 4-6 months can have cereal. If your baby can sit up on his own, doesn't fall down and can support his own head than he can have cereal. But if he's still doing his little "Stevie Wonder" impression, he's not ready. Some babies will eat a lot. I know my son, he's 2 months as well, for a while seemed to not get enough, but that eventually blew by. He was going through a growth spurt and that takes a lot of energy and they will be really hungry during that time. Try tracking his eating habits. See if it's different day to day or week to week. Once you see a pattern, you and/or your ped will figure out what's going on.

Hi, My daughter was a very hungry baby as well i know how frustrating it can be for the both of you... i started off giving her extra mils in the bottle but it wasn't filling her up any more so i put a scoop (i used a spare formula scoop) of Farex (baby porridge) in her bottle and it done the trick, i done that from 5 weeks old, it was great it was filling her up for awhile longer i also had to start Madison on solids before 4 months because she was such a hungry baby, she is now 10months and as healthy as ever...

My son ate almost non-stop from the time he was born until he was 2 months old. He just had one MASSIVE growth spurt and doubled his birth weight during that time. Doctor said he was totally healthy and to just keep on nursing him! He's since slowed down his eating (thank God!!) and is now on a somewhat normal routine. So just keep on giving the kid his milk whenever he wants it - he'll let you know what his body needs!

If you have questions about this, I would call the OB department of your hospital and just ask the nurse there or even just call your doctor.
You dont want to mess around with feeding your baby improperly, it may hinder his development.

But yea, I wouldnt get opinions from people that are not doctors.
This sort of thing isnt something you want to mess with.

My pediatrician said it was ok to start feeding the baby cereal at about that time, especially if they are hungry, plus it helped with the gas b/c it sat better on her tummy & filled her up. Just be sure to give him plenty of fluids as well so he doesn't get constipated.

That is for when you are eating cereal. But what I am talking about is mixing a small quantity with the milk in order to thicken it which is recommended by doctors. The reason why you give cereal when they are sitting up is because then they have the gage reflex so that they will not choke on the cereal. This is not actually eating the sereal, but more like drinking thicker milk. Rice cereal is the only cereal that will fit through the teet.

Thats the story of a 2 month old babies life! lol! They are always hungry. How often does your baby get hungry? is it around every 2 to 2 and a half hours? If it is, then thats completely normal, yeah right now its kind of irritating having to do it so often, but it gets better......I promise! Also putting rice cereal in with his formula wont hurt him....Don't be afraid to try the rice cereal............plus if you don't try it how will you ever know how great it will work out. I started putting rice cereal into my sons bottle with formula when he was 3 months, he didnt get hurt, nothing bad happened, and it was the best thing I ever did because he started sleeping through the night ever since then. His poops may look a little different, but seriously it is nothing to worry about because its just their body adjusting to the new food. Good Luck!!!! ♥♥

Talk to your pediatrician... you can probably add a little rice cereal to her milk, that will help to fill her little belly. Make sure to have some infint gas relief drops just in case the addition to her diet causes gas in the beginning.

At 2 months old he will be going thorugh growth spurts every couple weeks which will make him constantly hungry. His digestive systme is too underdeveloped to start him on cereals and you risk allergies by introducing them too early. Just keep giving him more milk. Rusks pose a choking hazard at such a young age also. Remember that they change so quickly at this age that he could be over this in a week or two and you will not have regretted holding back on solids and the issues that too early an introduction to solids can bring. ie, reflux, food allergies and sensitivites, skin conditions, IBS, etc.

Are you certain his "hunger" is not just a fixation/need to chew. Soem babies are born with teeth!!! Some can begin teething really early (this is not a sign of being ready for solids!) and will want to chew on something constantly. Perhaps you could try to find something soft that he can chew on that is softer than a typical teether which is quite hard and not suitable for newbies. I know some Moms who have used a clean damp facecloth as it can be held by such a young babe. Good luck and hang in there.

its way to early to start on baby cereal. i started weaning at 5 and a half months and still thought it was a bit early. experts recommend that u wait until a baby can sit with support and that comes at rough 6 months before starting solids. just give him more milk.

You can also try putting in the milk some rice cereal, which is also good for them. Get a teet with a hole that is a bit bigger than the ones for new borne babies so that the rice cereal can fit through the teet. I used number 3 teets with Tommy Tippee bottles. The rice cereal also has added nutrients that could prove beneficial. It also assists with reflux to make the milk thicker so as not to push up the esophagus.

This might work better.

Maybe he is also thirsty. Try giving him redbush tea with brown sugar (not honey until 12 months. their bodies can't break it down) in between feeds or just boiled water that has cooled down to room temperature. My little one was the same and I gave her milk every 2 hours up until 3 months. She use to get breast milk and then formula and then breast milk and so on - every 2 hours. I also gave her redbush tea (has anti-oxidants & is very good for the body & has no caffiene) in between and / or water.

Good luck

My oldest daughter was like this - she was eating all the time and in large quantities. I started her on pureed foods at 2 months or so, as well. I mixed the cereal in with her liquid, and fed her through a bottle so she would not choke (as tongue control is not great yet at that age). I started using the tiny baby spoons at about 3 months once she got the hang of things a bit more. It really helped her out ~

My son was never satisfied with just his bottle. I didnt produce enough breastmilk so had to use formula. After a month he seemed to always be hungry. Later when speaking to the pediatrician he ran a couple of tests and came to find that he had reflux. Its very common in newborns. We changed his formula and have him on a antacid and now at 6 months old he is doing so much better. We went through a couple of peds before we found this one...who is amazing. Some just brush off the symptoms like there nothing. Dont ignore it if he's hungry...ask your ped about reflux or gerd.

The thing about giving a baby too much formula is too much can give them a belly ache then ur up all night with a winy baby.My son went thru not getting enough,and I kelp raising it,and he still stayed hunger,and wouldn't rest at night.When I started the him on ceral he stayed full longer.I just would mix him up a little in a bowl, and spoon feed him, made him a small bottle of milk to help rinse it down.My son was much more satisfied after that.Of course my son is fixing to be 8 in July,so I must have did ok.

I started giving my little boy ceral by spoon at 2 months, and whole milk at 3 months.He was a premi when he was born,doctors will tell u no, but my whole family has always did that,and we're all just fine.The ceral fills them up,and feeding them by spoon helps teach them how to eat instead of sucking everything.Try the ceral u'll be surprised.Just keep in mind that back in the day they didn't have formula.My son will be 8 in July,and is a very healthy boy,and very smart might I add. I hope this helps you.

My son is the same way and he is about the same age as your baby ... what I do now is try his pacifier because sometimes he does just want to suck something to soothe himself. If he still is fussing even with the pacifier then I feed him and he normally eats for about 10 mins or so then stops. Then in about a half hour to an hour we go through the whole process again. My doctor says that soon enough he will start doing longer feedings not as often but for now this is what he needs. My doctor hasn't mentioned solids and I don't feel comfortable enough to do that yet.

if you want to increase her risk for obesity later in life, go ahead and give her cereal. Otherwise wait until she's at least 4 months old like every other normal pediatrician recommends. She's 2 months old....she's probably going through a growth spurt. Suck it up and feed her. She'll get better in the next week or two, I'm sure.

When my son was about 2 months old, he was always hungry also. "They" say its to early to start them on cereal, but...... When I was a baby, that was never a concern, so I was very old school and I put a little cereal in his bottle and it made a world of differance. Good Luck and it wont hurt your baby to give him cereal at this age.

[deleted account]

I think if a child is hungry all the time, it's a message. At 2 months of age, he's not going to be manipulating. It could be due to a lot of things - he's literally needing more nourishment (most likely) to just needing more sucking for soothing, or he has an upset stomach from overfeeding. It's hard to determine what. My biggest concern with adding food to formula this young is that if he's needing more nourishment, the rice cereal is going to fill him up but not necessarily give him the nourishment his body is needing. If this is your decision - that's your right as a mom, though - and don't let anyone cringe at you or say you're wrong. If there's one thing I've learned being a mom to children ages 20 to 3.... is that "the right way" changes. I've gone from tummy sleeping to back sleeping. I've gone through feed vegetables first to fruits and back to veggies. So - just watch. If he's sleeping better and not irritable, growing at the same pattern he has been, and physically/mentally hitting most of the milestones, then you did the right thing. If he starts having more problems (sleeping, growth, etc.) then back off and try something different. That's parenting - always asking for opinions, trying things out, and not being too scared to adjust if necessary.

My only point - is if he starts being hungry constantly again - beef up the formula first. Babies will go through growth spurts and their hunger increases for a few days during or right before that time.

Putting cereal in a bottle isn't a choking hazard. My son has SEVERE reflux and his G.I. Specialist has instructed me to put cereal in his bottle to help thicken the milk to help it stay down. He told me that one teaspoon for every fluid oz was an appropriate amount to start with. Thicker, but not too thick that it won't come out of the nipple. I have big boys, and like your little one, they were always hungry, so cereal was added at about 6 weeks to their diet. Good luck with your little one!

i feed my 2 kids cereal the day they come home from the hospital it doesn't hurt them and they are completely healthy with no allergies.

I can bet a good chunk of cash that it was because of the cereal.....that's why they recommend holding off...... allergies is a huge concern and they say the earlier you introduce certain things the more likely it is to cause allergies

His digestive system is not ready for anything but milk yet. I know the feelings you are having right now. My son went through that. It seemed like I could not feed him enough. Babys eat more (a lot more) when they are going through growth spirts. It's a phase and will pass, then it will hit again. Wish I had more encouraging words for you.

[deleted account]

Sounds like ur gettin mixed opinions! Here's mine......I'm the proud owner of a beautiful 16 month old daughter and in my experience you just give them MORE MILK......no cereals! You're willing to give them cereal which is gonna be hard on his lil' stomach but you're not willing to give him more milk at each feeding? There's reasons why they don't recommend things until a certain age and although you may try some things a little bit early giving a 2 month old baby cereal in his bottle or otherwise is potentially gonna hurt him.....it could cause allergies and upset stomachs, along with bein dangerous like one other mom mentioned.....it's a choking hazard! If you're not satisfied with the answers you get here, have you spoken to ur doctor to mull over the pros and cons or even research it online.......ALL the data supports waiting! Good luck! Remember, he's ur son and you'll do what you feel is best for both of you! Trust ur instincts!

I don't understand how most people have this opinion that babies should only eat every 3-4 hours. I breastfeed exclusively until about 5-6 months and my babies have always eaten every two hours. If my child goes for three hours before feeding again, that's a vacation for me! I don't know where the standard 3-4 hrs came about other than from formula feedings. Babies have growth sperts around 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks, and about every month, I know my son has a week of eating every 1 1/2 hrs for a weeks and I feel empty all the time, and then the next week he's down to 2 1/2 hrs and at times I feel like im not drained enough. Its tough figuring out each individual child, but just go with the flow and dont get all stressed out. if your kids is growing and gaining weight, don't sweat the small stuff! If people want to take the risk and put cereal in bottles or egg yolks and all the other stuff, go ahead, that's their gamble! It's your baby, do what you think is best!

I went through the same thing with my son and it was because of gas. When a baby has bad gas it feels better if their belly is full. Try doing the bicycle with his legs if he starts farting and burping then you'll know.

Hi Hayley,

My daughter was born at only 6lbs & was always hungry. I breast fed both my children exclusively until she was 6 months old & she was a very demanding feeder. Most days she would feed every couple of hours, then hop back on the breast at around 4pm & stay on it practically non stop till around 10pm, it was really uncomfortable for me to do this so i saw my doctor & she said that as she was a small baby she would feed more to get her weight up more quickly. My daughter also had colic & reflux & did not have a pacifier so she would also feed for comfort. I tried putting her on formula but she wouldn't take a bottle so i had to just stick it out. She also started teething at 2 months old & babies will also feed for comfort if they are in pain.They will also feed alot more in a growth spurt.

I agree with all the mums that are saying to increase your bubs milk intake as my doctor advised me to feed on demand. I wouldn't recommend putting the cereal in the bottles as most doctors & heath care professionals will strongly advise you against it, i haven't heard that it's a choking hazard but it can do damage to your childs bowel if they don't digest it properly, my son was in hospital for 3 days after having his bowel unblocked at the age of 2 & a half months & that was just from breast milk, nothing else! So they do only need milk!

So as you can see there may be one or many reasons for your bubs increased feeding but if your really worried seek help from your doctor. hope this helps & congrats on your bub!

don't give him rusks, they are for teething and shouldn't be used till about 6 months. just keep giving him more milk. it may be a growth spurt. if it doesn't settle down try talking to your doctor before trying anything else. good luck :)

I also have a 9wk old who is always hungry i was breastfeeding so i changed to formula this was not working so i tried baby cereal he would not eat this either so i introduced him to baby fruits (just with a spoon) when he was 6 wks old and he only has about 5 or 6 teaspoons of a morning and this keeps him happy for the rest of the day.

I don't think you would want to limit him, and giving him cereal is not a good idea because they haven't developed and its not easily digested before 6 months, and can cause excess gas. Is it possible he needs more sucking. How about 6oz and if you can stretch the hour between feedings an additional minute or two every feeding he should get accustomed to eating less frequently.

[deleted account]

Both my son and daughter were hungry all the time. Both my grandmother (raised 7 kids) and my mother (raised 4 kids) said to put in a little bit of cereal and little bit a banana in the bottle. Put enough in so that the formula is still able to come out of the bottle It helps them feel full. I had no problem with it.

2 mo. is about time for him to go through a growing spert. They will be hungry more often during them. If he is hungry feed him. If you're not sure, try a nuk - he may just want to suck. Or he could have gas... sometimes they cry from the pain. If so try a baby tummy drops to see if that is an issue.

My 4 yr old use to get gas we couldn't get out... he would burp & fart all the time, but still had issues. The drops really helped him & it made it a lot easier on me too.

some Dr will tell you one thing and another a different thing... you have to do what you feel is right for your baby. If you feel like he isn't getting enough with just milk, then do cereal.. I had a 9 lbs 5 oz girl and a 10 lb 6 oz boy... they both came home and was eatting the yolk of eggs and mash potatoes and gravy..... You have to look at it like this.. back in the days of our parents, grandparents, great grandparents... etc what did they eat? you think that they only had milk? I know that all my family had more than just that.. I have nieces and they all ate since they came home from the hospital and so did my cousin and my siblings... so do what you feel is right for your baby... just don't tell the Dr cause some will tell you its wrong and when yhou question them they treat you like your an idoit cause you don't have a dr degree... but I talk to my Dr about it with my dr and got that, but change dr with my son and my dr was very ok with it.. so you have to do what you feel is right... Is your little one sleeping good?
