My daughter is five months old and we are starting to spoon feed. I am not sure how much bottle formula to give her and how much cereal to feed her. We are doing four ounces now in the bottle because she does have rice cereal in there due to reflux. Can you help me out with the portion sizes of her bottle and how much to spoon feed?

You don't cut down any on their formula for several months. Food technically is not supposed to replace formula/breast milk under a year. Personally, I wouldn't be spoon feeding her ANY cereal. I understand the cereal for reflux, but cereal is never needed and food under 6 months 'can' be damaging.
