Ok yesterday my pediatrician said I can start adding rice cereal to the breast milk for my son. He said to start with 1/2 a teaspoon for every 1 oz of breast milk. He said at the next checkup (at the end of this month) that he will probably suggest I start with other solids, so I should try to get my son used to a bowl and spoon now with the rice cereal. Sounds like a good plan to me! Well we tried it last night and my son freaked out. He screamed and cried and screamed and cried, so of course he gave himself bad gas and cried some more because of that. More milk/cereal ended up ON him then IN him. So through the night as he woke up I just breastfed him or gave him a bottle (he can go back and forth between the 2 without issues). This morning he was hungry and I tried it and he freaked out again. I stuck with it hoping it'd get better...it didn't....Anytime I try to feed this kid with a spoon he freaks out. Is this normal? Is it just something he needs to get used to?? I tried to feed him before he got hungry to the point where he cried to let me know but that is VERY hard. Most kids will make a certain face, or start sticking their tongue out or something...but my son does not. He is normal and smiley and then bam all of a sudden he is crying from hunger. Normally he would eat 3oz of breast milk like every 2 hours, but I was told the rice cereal would help space out the feedings a little more, so I'm not sure when he would be hungry yet cause we just started so I haven't really been able to see a pattern yet....Please help!
