do it! my son had lots of digestive problems. and this helped keep it down. the bottle is the way we did it. the only thing is you will have to buy cereal nipples or make the holes in the nipples you have bigger we used a fork and strecthed out the holes in the nipples. he will be fine we had to do this at about 3 weeks old and our son was fine. hope this helps good luck

DO IT!! this is the easiest way of finding out if there is any other underlying conditions you need to seek further for. I recommend it to anyone that has a baby spitting up constantly and is over 8 weeks. Just make sure ur not over feeding...but good luck hun!!

my son didn't have the problem, but my cousin's little one did and their ped said to put cereal in her bottle also. i would make it very soupy also and make sure the nipple on the bottle will allow it to come thru. It seems to be helping her and she is about 2 months old.

Rice cereal is the easiest cereal to digest. I think it must help absorb some of the stomach acids because my son spit up a lot less once I starting adding it to his bottles.

im not exactly sure what Nutramigen is but my son likes to up chuck everything and sometimes i swear he does it just because its different. just make some cereal really soupy thats how we started our son on cereal. Im not sure how old your lil one is but my son had rice cereal at about 5 weeks old. And I dont know if i would put cereal in their bottle either.
