My 3 month old baby doesn't seem to be staying full. Has anyone started them on rice cereal this early?

Way to early for cereal increase the amount if formula you're offering, he could be going through a growth spurt.

I waited until 6 months, but the rice cereal made both my kiddos super constipated! Yes.. i said it LOL. I think its still too early. Their tummy isn't ready for solid anything yet. I would increase the amount of milk per feeding. It could also be a growth spurt so just hang in there!

I just started my son on rice cereal about a week ago and he is almost 5 months. How much formula are you giving him/her? I was giving 5 oz every 3 hours (roughly) and now the rice cereal helps but he still gets hungry at night sometimes. I believe he is going through a growth spurt as well. If you are really concerned call your doctor then can help :).

Too early for cereal yet. Try increasing the amount of milk. Baby could also be going through a growth spurt and need to be feed more and more frequently for awhile.
