BE CAREFUL WITH RICE CEREAL!!! My DD(a little over 2 weeks at the time) had acid reflux and was spitting up a lot, and my doc told me to add one Tbs of rice cereal per every 4 oz every bottle. What my doctor DIDN'T tell me is this can cause constipation. My poor little girl has not gone more then once a day(at most and even then only a small amount) in a week. She is extremely fussy and just uncomfortable. We are trying a bunch of different things now to get that down but..just be careful with the amount. My mom started all of us(she had 4) on cereal at 3 weeks only one bottle at night, and we are all fine. So I am not saying don't give it to your DS just becareful with the amount.
hi there i have been giving my daughter cereal since 7 weeks and she is fine her stools did not change much but they might with yours rice ceral is not a solid food it is very broken down and safe for your baby, also the thickened formula someone mentioned is thickened with rice cereal, i know my baby was thought to have acid reflux as well so i investigated it.good luck
