Ask moms for adviceMy daughter is 4 months..she takes 4-5 ounces of Gentlease formual every 3.5-4 hours..she goes to bed around 7:30 and will still wake up twice in the night. I tried giving her some rice cereal with 5 oz formula AFTER and i think it really upset her stomach i felt horrible. But at night time she used to take 7 oz and sleep a good 5 hr stretch..idk if because she is getting bigger and her stomach is changing she isnt agreeing with her formula anymore (which is for fussiness and gas) but she seems to be alot gassier lately. I bought the gerber oatmeal to try tonight i guess my question is how many ounces should i give her before and after her oatmeal?? i'm only giving her 1/2 a tbs

well at one point when my baby was about 4mo old i would mix just a tiny bit of rice cereal in her bottle and cut the nipple of the bottle just a tiny bit bigger so that the cereal would pass through... that way it was mixed in really well, and wasn't too thick for her tummy... i did this or bed time bottles only
