My baby's only 2 months old and she only eats 4 ounces of gerber soy at a time she won't eat more then that should I start adding a little cereal to her bottles?

Hi Seairra,
I know how confusing things can be for any mother. Absolutely do not add cereal to her bottle. At her age she should only be eating 2-3 ounces, every 2-3 hours. She is already getting enough and if you add the cereal, you are taking the chance of stretching her stomach, which could lead to obesity and other health risks as she gets older. She should not have anything else until approximately 6 months of age. Her digestive system needs time to develop before her little belly can handle more solid foods!

Hope this helps,
Sarah
