Echoing others. No rice before six months. No rice added to the bottle ever.

I did let both of my children eat rice that young. It was usually about 6-7 pm to help them stay full and sleep longer at night (recommended by my doc) just sprinkle a little rice in a bowl and add formula to water it down pretty food I mean it has to be able to stay on spoon but you don't want it thick. Just start with like a spoonful of rice to water down they don't need much at 4 mo to fill there bellys.

None. Rice cereal is pretty pointless and a baby shouldn't have solids under 6 months... and certainly not in a bottle.

Like Sarah said, you don't put rice in the bottle. It is a choking hazard. Until they are 6 months babies only need formula or breastmilk.

None......rice should only be fed by spoon. If baby can do the spoon then baby is not ready for rice.
