No. A baby that young can only have breast milk/formula

I breastfed so she didn't have a bottle. I think its probably something you should dis usa with the pediatrician though. How do you know the milk isn't satisfying her?

I had to give my son cereal in his bottle around that time as well because of the same reason .. the amount of cereal that I'd given him wasn't enough to make a difference in the consistency of the milk to me (i can't remember the exact amount of cereal at this time) and I only gave it to him in 1 or two bottles a day for a short amount of time, per my moms request .. if it makes u feel comfortable discuss it with ur pediatrician and see what they say

My cousin was told by her daughter's pediatrician to put cereal in her bottle when she was 2 months old, but only because she was growing so fast. I'd ask the dr first though.

I'll ask her pediatrician to be sure but she won't sleep through the night at all she's up every half hour - hour  she's really fussy and she also vomits ALOT she's not keeping down the formula and breast milk she is drinking ( I will dicuss the vomiting with her ped also ) just wanted to see if anybody else has done this and if it worked

Her vomiting and fussiness could be a sign of acid reflux. Its very common with babies! I would not recommend putting cereal in her bottle yet until you talk to her doctor because of her age. She may not be able to process it correctly. The reason why she's up so much could be because she's vomiting her food so she's hungry.

Her belly might not like the both types of milk.

I just got through reading about that and it said No bcuz baby can choke on small piece and its not suitable for the baby unless ure doctor says so

I would say talk to her doctor. It sounds like her milk may need to be changed to something more gentle. The cereal may upset her more.

My sisters all did it pretty early it is just what you feel comfortable with. I only gave it to my baby with a spoon to help him get used to eating with the spoon but my sisters have used a bottle to.
