Rice Cereal - Is 12 weeks too young? Lock Rss

DS has just started sleeping through from 7pm to 7am but when he wakes up in the morning he's so starving he has 3 bottles between 7 and 11. I'd really like to try giving him a little rice cereal and someone told me to put a tablespoon in his first bottle. Anyone else had to offer solids so early? He's a big boy (already 6.5kg and growing fast).

I guess it depends whether or not DS shows signs that he wants solids, eg putting things in mouth, watching you eat with interest. And is he holding his head up himself. Each baby is different. I personally think 12 wks is too young but that's my opinion. He's prob drinking heaps between 7 & 11 since he didn't get a night feed so is stocking up.
