I wanna make sure I have this solid food thing down before my baby goes to a babysitter next week when i go back to school. HOw many times a day do I feed cereal? she is 5 months and I been doing it once a day. How many tablespoons of cereal a feeding? I been doing 1-2 tablespoons. Is that enough or too much? Should I be giving her formula with the cereal or is the cereal a feeding in itself? Should I feed her cereal til she is full? I need help lol thanks

The only thing my Dr. said was once a day until 6 months, twice a day until 9 months, and 3 times a day until 12 months. Mine is 7 months and I do twice a day. He gets 5 bottles a day, at two of those feedings I mix 2 tbls. of rice cereal with the bottle I just mixed. I also give half a jar of baby food. When he was under 6 months I gave him the cereal once a day, after he had cereal a couple weeks I started introducing him to Gerber 1st foods, just to get a taste.
