3 month old and rice cereal.

My daughter is 3 months old & hungry constantly (breast fed, every 1-2 hours), I go back to work next week & wanted to start rice cereal to help substain her longer between feeds and let me some more rest.... thoughts?.... My doctor said no because of the potential of allergy development later in life.... I am a nurse and need to be focused on my job while I am there... :(... I dont know what to do! I didnt want to start "solids" till 6 months but I just need a break! I pump and give her extra after she nurses but I see no difference.

I agree with your doctor you have no idea what long term effects you will cause by introducing solids early. You go back to work in a week enjoy the time with her now you'll miss it when you go back.
