My daughter has reflux. I am debating starting her on rice cereal.
She wakes up every 3 to 4 hours to feed and she eats about 4 to 6 oz of formula per feeding. I don't think she gets enough to eat.
If I get her stated on rice cereal in her bottle how much would I need to put in? And would it be better in the bottle or to spoon feed her?

It would be better to talk to her doctor about how to treat the reflux.

If she is growing, thriving, and not dehydrated.... she's getting enough.

You're pretty lucky that you get that much sleep at only 8 weeks and that seems like she's eating a good amount. As far as rice cereal goes I agree with Dove, talk to the doctor.
