Ask your pedi - mine said absolutely no rice cereal until much later. I think the recommendation is to start them at 6 months. DD1 wasn't interested in any solids at all until closer to 7 months.
There are some pedi's now that will recommend putting rice cereal in bottle for severe acid reflux, but that's the only legit reason I've heard.
I had a lot of people tell me to start rice cereal that early with DD1, but all those people had no idea what they were talking about and had had babies a LONG time ago.
stevieandtracie:Cereal should not be put in a bottle (unles Dr. says to for reflux) and should be spoon-fed only at about usually between 4-6 months. GL!
This. But, I introduced it to DD1 at 3 months and she did very well.
