She may need more milk at a feeding. She may be out growing the 5ozs and need a 6 oz bottle instead. My son is 4 now but by the time he was 2 1/2 months he was eating the rice cereal and 8 oz bottles as well as some jar food. But I agree with checking with your baby's dr.

yes you should use sma white and maybe give her a full jar instead of half and maybe anuther ounce or two of milk

my nephews were drinking 6-8 oz at each feeding by that age I would give an extra oz or two at each feeding and check with your pediatrician for tips. putting cereal in each bottle doesnt always help it may actually cause more problems like constipation so be careful.

I think you should try giving her more oz in a feeding. And give her more cereal . . .dont put cereal IN the bottle. . if she is old enough to eat cereal she is old enough to eat it from a spoon.

Three months is a normal point for a growth spurt. So probably will last a few days but try giving her an ounce or two in the more. Growth spurts can be difficult a great time to just simply feed on demand. Your baby needs to the extra calories to make up for the quick growth her body is going through.

I'd say more formula. 3 months is awfully early for jarred food... my doctor suggests between 5 and 6 months to add food. Until then, he says just baby cereal and formula. A baby should get 24 to 35 oz of formula in around 5 feedings a day. Clearly every baby is different, but your baby may not really be ready for those foods. You may want to check with your pediatrician :) That wasn't terribly helpful, I'm sorry - good luck!

Cereal in the bottle. It's like magic lol. My son was always fussy until I started doing that. Switch to a fast flow nipple.

I agree with running everything by the doctor... also oatmeal is a good filler and adding rice cereal to her bottle or even to her jar food can thicken it and give them a fuller feeling longer. Definately check with your doctor and make sure there is nothing else going on though, just to be on the safe side. She may also be growing, and just stocking up for it... my son was just like that, and a big boy... and now he has thinned out and is just a solid rock... funny how they grow. :)

Add some cereal to the bottles when you feed her...You also may need to slow down on how much she eats have you talked to her dr bc she does sound like shes eating alot ...lol But in the mornings you should give her cereal and mix a little bit of fruit in with it..My daughter eats oatmeal in the mornings then 2 hrs later she will have a 6oz bottle and go to sleep
