Refux and gas in bai: Reflux is very common in all infants and it is due to the gasto-esophageal junction which gradually matures as infant gets older, usually at 9-12 months. There is no need for medications for reflux unless the infant is not gaining weight. However gas is a different matter. Infants who seem to have a lot of abdomial pain have colic. It is caused by formula feeding and has nothing to do with bottles.

Cereal before bedtim: Giving cereal before bedtime ie a bit unusual. Typically the child should be given the heavy meals earlier in the evening and perhaps be given a cup of warm milk, which is rich in phenylalanine before bed-time, provided that you brush his teeth. Phenylalanine, one the milk's ingredients and an Amino Acid makes the children, and adults sleep better.
