Yes I think you should increase what you're offering him, that's a great idea!

I think you should feed your baby when he is hungry. Our son ate every 2 hours at that age as well. Maybe it's time to increase the ounces of formula that you're offering. You're baby's stomach is growing rapidly at this point as well as his body. I would avoid adding cereal to his bottle, it's dangerous and he's too young for solids anyhow.

As Amy said, never put ceareal in a bottle!! And your son is far too young for solids! When are you feeding your son? Is he on a schedule?



How many ounces are you feeding him? Is it possible that his feeding ques are just for attention?



He could also just be going through a growth spurt.

You should never add cereal to a bottle and he's too young in general to start solids. Besides that solids before one are just for fun and shouldn't be used in place of formula. Have you tried increasing the ounces at one feeding to see if you can get more then a two hour stretch, otherwise it's pretty normal.
