Hi everyone! I'm new to the group, but have been reading everyone's advice for a while now and love it. I now have a question I need some help with my son.
I've been feeding my 6mo old son strictly breast milk and hopefully can continue till he's at least a year old. Lately there are times when I feed him, I feel like he's not getting enough and will cry. I know he's teething & that's something to consider, but I really think there are times I'm low. I just started giving him crereal yesterday mixed with breastmilk. Once in the morning & again at night. He didn't do very well with last nights feeding, so I gave him the remainder in the bottle with just a bit of warm water added to it, along with my breastmilk. He did very good morning, but now with tonight's breastfeeding, he hasn't eaten much & I though maybe some cereal would help fill his tummy a little.
Finally the question. Since I'm on empty right now, can I mix boiled water with the cereal and give it to him?
