Jodi is right on this. Formula or breast milk at this point is what he needs.

He doesn't need ANY amount to fill him up INSTEAD of a bottle. That's my point. At his age, if he is hungry, he needs the nutrition in his milk. You shouldn't cut his bottle feeds to feed him rice cereal instead.

Why would you want to fill him up with a nutritionally void substance INSTEAD of his milk? Even when you start a child on solids (at around 6 months of age), it is only for practice and should NEVER replace their formula or breastmilk.
