Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index

The baby is only 2 1/2 weeks old! Part of being a parent is dealing with feeding the baby during the night. I think it is selfish and unrealistic to except a baby this young to sleep longer through the night. At this age a baby still eats every 2-3 hours and the night is no exception. Tell your daughter in law to just deal with it as millions of mothers have since the beggining of time. A baby should not have rice cereal put in their bottle unless they have bad acid reflux and can't hold formula down. When a child is ready to begin rice cereal (4 months old for bottle fed babies) it should be fed to them with a spoon. [COLOR=DarkRed][removed][/COLOR]
My daughter started having rice in her formula when she was 1 week old. She was slurping down tons of formula and shooting it across the room after eating it. Doc said she had acid reflux and thats why she ate so much cause her belly hurt. He had me put 1tbs. in 2 ounces of formula. The rice never caused any complications. He even had me give it to my son and he had no reflux. If its sleep she needs why does'nt someone come and stay a night or two with her? My mom did this a couple of times for me and it was such a blessing.
