Bigger baby

My mother in law keeps suggesting that I put baby cereal in my son bottle. I think he's not old enough just yet but she's insisting breast milk is not getting him full. So confused

  • Agreed with PP. There's no need to use cereal at this age. If your LO is not having enough wet diapers or gaining weight then speak to your pediatrician. They would likely recommend supplementing with formula rather than cereal.
  • This is why I am going to start homemade babyfood at 4 months. Cereal wont harm your baby (if they still drink all the milk they normally do) but their are not nutrients in it. Also some give cereal then LO is not hubgry so they miss a feeding and are out nutrients they normally get
  • Talk to your dr before starting anything.
