Hello When do you start rice cereal at night with formula for your baby? My baby is on formula and he is almost 2 months old. He is sleeping at night but he waking up because he is hungry. I heard some people have started rice cereal early as 2 months but just a pinch of it in the formula to start out with. I am going to ask our pediatrician but I know all pediatricians are all different.

my pediatrician gave me a pamphlet on when to start foods rice cereal is 4-5 months, and you should start with 2 tablespoons per 4 ounces... dont start it at 2 months without an okay from your sons pediatrician, they usually only start it that early for reflux

4 months is when you can start to feed the cereal...with a baby spoon.

My son started eating cereal at 2-3 months old. I never put it in a bottle always in a bowl and mixed it with his formula. My son started sleeping through the night at 2 in a half months.
