I started giving my 3 month old rice cereal by spoon. The reason i did this is because he was getting hungry alot earlier and the formula wasnt satisfying him as it needed to. and i heard tht your not supposed to put it in the bottle... he ate all of the rice cereal i made for him...which was only about 1 table spoon. that what the package says to give them for the first time. Is this bad? PS. he was already constipated from the soy formula he was on so he drinks 2 ounces of apple juice a day diluted with 2 ounces of water to keep him regulated.

I would wait on the cereal and just give him more formula. Cereal is like 'junk food' for babies. Could just be a growth spurt which is perfectly normal. Formula has everything his little body needs right now.

I would also just increase his formula and when you reintroduce solids in a couple of months just skip the cereal and start on veggies.
