How much baby cereal can I add to the formula bottles per day so my 5 month old baby stop waking up at nights for feeds? Thanks

Don't: Don't add infant cereal to your child's bottles. If she is ready to take baby foods, always give them with a spoon. She needs to learn to *eat* her foods, not *drink* them. At first, she may just take a spoonful or two, but it will gradually increase as she learns how to move the food off of the spoon. Most babies learn to sleep by having a regular routine and falling asleep in their own crib. ...Read more

(Usually, after 3 months of age a normal baby can be allowed to go 6-7 hours at night without feeding or other parental interaction.) The pediatrician can check the baby's growth at the 2 month check up next week, to make sure it's normal. ...Read more
