Formula and solids - help! Lock Rss

Hi everyone,

Hi everyone,

I am totally confused in what to do and would love your opinion.

Tahlia is 4.5 months old

My doctor told me that I need to start Tahlia on rice cereal as she is having to many bottles (7 in 24 hours but only @ 180 ml as she can not drink more than that)

On the box it says that I need to increase the dose until she eats 2 full tablespoons of the rice cereal. my doctor told me that I should still give her the bottle as well so now I am totally confused. Should I give her the bottle first or should I give her the rice cereal first and then fill her up wiht the bottle - if going by option 2, how much formula should I than give her after the solid food? Formula is very expensive and I do not want to waste it.

Please help,


My 2 Angels, Vanessa 10 & Tahlia 2


Lily is also 4.5 months old, this is what has been recommended to me.

Give half a normal feed, then give the rice cereal, then the other half of the feed.

I am breast feeding, but to save tipping out any formula maybe make two half bottles.

This is working quite well for me

Hope this helps
