My daughter is 6 months old, and I would like to start added gerber oatmeal to her bottles. How much is a good amount to add?

None. Cereal doesn't belong in a bottle. If you are going to give your baby cereal (which is completely unnecessary)... do so in a bowl w/ a spoon.

I agree with Dove, you don't add anything to a bottle. At 6 months, she is old enough to have it with a spoon. Always offer her bottle first and then, if she is still hungry, offer the oatmeal - a couple of spoon fulls is a good start.

Ok. So how much is good for a 6 month old, in a bowl, with a spoon? I think my daughters daycare teacher gave her 2 spoon fulls. Is that good? I am only planning on giving it to her during her 12:00 meal. I feed her banana in the morning and evening.
