My DS had his 4 month checkup yesterday and the doc is concerned that he is in the 3rd percentile for weight. DS usually eats about 24oz a day. The doc wants us to replace one bottle with rice cereal and build up to 3 meals a day of rice. He also says to spoon feed and not put the cereal in a bottle. The problem is DS screams every time we try to give him cereal. We make it the same consistency as his formula and have tried offer at different times during the day with no luck.
So, opinions/advice needed. Should we put it in the bottle? Mix it with something sweet like bananas? Keep trying with the spoon? Give up and go straight to fruits/veggies?
I have no clue what to do. TIA!
