My son is now 13 wks old and Im considering switching him from his current thickener (which is called Simply Thick) and just adding rice cereal to his bottles. Has anyone else used anything other then rice cereal to thicken there child feeds?
I realy concern that the rice cereal with cause more issues with his acid relfux (compared to most of you we have it pretty good). He is not a vomiter so Im not scared of that. Was hoping someone who has delt with this could give me some advise.
Thanks

We have thickened out lo's bottles with rice since she was 4 months and we only thicken her water with simply thick. It works great. I have heard you can thicken with oatmeal as well but never tried since the rice works fine.
