I'm glad she gained weight! Hopefully the constipation has passed as well!
Thankfully I have decided against cereal in her bottle...
I tried it but realized that she was eating less of course because she was full from the cereal and after realizing that there are only 10 calories in a tablespoon of rice cereal and since I was only putting a teaspoon in her bottle she was missing out on way more calories than she was getting...
Please know I was not putting the cereal in her bottle to make her sleep longer or go longer between feedings...I was trying to add more calories to her diet to make her gain weight...but I have noticed she has gained more WITHOUT THE CEREAL..
Thanks for replying
No judgement....but why are you putting cereal in your baby's bottle so early? There are many reasons why you shouldn't hun. I've heard of it and people do it but not until they are older.
Especially if your baby has had constipation problems, rice cereal is only going to make it worse. If you are worried about weight, then add a few more ounces of formula a day.
