Actually, 6 weeks is way too young for cereal. His tummy isn't ready yet for anything but breastmilk or formula because he can't digest it properly. You are also filling him up with empty calories. Breastmilk and formula are also the only nutrition he needs.

Also, doctors do not recommend cereal for premmies/underweight babies. I had one. I was demand feeding breastmilk and formula. THAT is how they get the best nutrition, not rice cereal.
