I am starting my daughter, Madeline, on rice cereal. She is 5 months old and has been strictly breastfed up until now. ( She wouldn't take a bottle.)
I have given her rice cereal in the morning for the last 3 days. I mix it with formula. She is just learning so is not ingesting a lot, but she seems to have excessive gas during the day. Luckily, most of it is gone by night. Plus, she hasn't had a poop in couple of days!
Has anyone else had a problem with rice cereal and gas? If so, what did you give next? I'm thinking of trying oat cereal. I thought it was a milk sensitivity with the formula, but my doctor didn't seem to think so. I may try a different formula though. Any suggestions there would help, too!
I'm looking forward to reading your responses! I'm new to Circle of Moms but I already see that it will be a great source of advice!
