When you feed LO rice cereal do you give them the bottle first or the cereal?

    I nurse but have been told at this age that milk or formula always come first to solids. Not sure when it changes though.

    This, the pedi said the milk is for nutrition, the cereal is for "practice" and he didn't want LO filling up on solids before getting his BM.

    we tend to Bf first then solids then bf again if he is still wanting more or I simply give him a little water to "wash" it down

    I've always heard bottle first then solids but when we went to my LO's 6 month well check the pediatrician told us to do solids first.  I'm not sure why.  So we've been doing that so far this week and honestly - I don't think it really matters much.  She only eats a little cereal and then she is done and wants milk.  I think if it got to where she was preferring the solids over the breastmilk then we'd change but so far this is working well for us to get her to try the solids while she's still a little more hungry.  :)

    My pedi told me to do them at completely different times.  Keep LO on his current bottle schedule, and give him solids in between bottle feedings.

    We also do cereal (barley) at a totally separate time from breastfeeding about 1 1/2 hours after she nurses.
