Big appetite, sleeps often

My 3 mo. old son weighs 13lbs n eats every 1.5-2 hrs about 4-6oz he is exclusively breastfed with the addition of rice cereal when I give him my milk in a bottle. He suffers from acid reflux and the rice cereal keeps him from spitting up or vomiting. He sleeps after just about every meal. The only time he has longer breaks between meals is bedtime, 4-6 hrs of sleep before he wakes to nurse. Any suggestions?

Well I have heard mix reviews with the rice cereal. I have overactive letdown which causes my son to choke when he nurses from me...before adding the rice cereal to his bottle he would also choke from the bottle because he has such a strong suckle..the rice cereal keeps him from spitting up or experiencing the side affects of his acid reflux

Suggestions for what? He sounds perfectly normal to me... though I would skip the rice cereal and the bottle.... other than that (and the fact that your son gets a good chunk of sleep at night) he sounds exactly like my son at that age. Well, no... my son would usually nurse more frequently than that. He had reflux too and nursing was his comfort... sometimes he'd go 1-3 hours... sometimes he'd nurse 3 times in the same hour. Nothing wrong w/ it.
