My 3 month old wakes every 2 hrs hungry each night, but will only drink 3 oz of formula. Will rice or oatmeal cereal help if added to her formula?

No rice or oatmeal will not help. It may actually make it worse as your baby's tummy is not developed enough for cereal yet. Waking every 2 to 3 hours at night is still pretty normal at this age. Their tummies are still pretty small to be able to hold too much milk at one time. In the next couple months it will start to get better.
