Rice cereal in bottles for bedtime.....

Courtney - posted on 05/02/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




Anyone starting their little ones on a little bit of rice cereal in their bottles at bed time? I am wanting to start to get an extra hour or two of sleep. Our pediatrician said it was fine, but I am not quite sure how much to put in for every ounce of breast milk....anyone have an idea, or has anyone started this?

Cayden has acid reflux and his pediatrician has us putting 1 tbsp of rice cerel per 4 oz. bottle. At night time I usually add a little extra so mommy and daddy can get some much needed sleep. I use the Gerber DHA cereal. He's doing very well on it and seems to enjoy the bottles more, he finished off his bottles now and he use to only drink around 3 ozs.
