Not recommended: Although everyone knows someone who did this and the child turned out just fine, it really isn't recommended. As long as your child is growing well and developing normally, they should grow out of this...Eventually. Burping well and sitting up (car seat) for a while after eating can both help. Antireflux formulas and adding rice cereal really don't do a lot to help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: You do not mention the age of the infant, but no infant under the age of 4 months needs cereal, and water only serves to dilute the calories they are taking in. The only reason to feed the infant water is if they are vomiting, and you cannot get them to drink formula, pedialyte, or gatorade, in that order. ...Read more
There is no deal...: It is rather a safe baby food! it is just that the rice cereal is easy to mix with milk, or can be eaten by itself with decent taste, and most babies tend to do well with it...It does not cause much problem at all and I have never seen or know of any baby being allergic to rice cereal...Otherwise, i don't know of any other deal with rice cereal...Any problem/concern, consult doc...Good luck. ...Read more
Why ??: Such additives do not improve the babies nutrition. Occasionally a doc will recommend this to help with reflux , but beyond this i don't recommend it.. The introduction of cereals and other solids should wait until infants tongue thrust fades and they sit around 6 mo. When offered it should be on a spoon as a paste.That helps teach baby a new feeding method as they get old enough to enjoy it. ...Read more
