The twins will be 4 months in about 2 weeks. Their bottles are no longer holding them. They are eating about 6 1/2 ounces every 4 hrs and eating up to 4 ounces in between....so I would like to start them on rice cereal for morning and evening bottles...but I don't know if I should spoon feed, or put it in their bottles, and how much....advice please:)
Update: I ended up putting around a teaspoon in 7 1/2 ounces of formula. I am sure it didn't do much. Lol. My Doc said we could start rice cereal at 4months, and a few solids. I won't know what that will be until their appt though.
I don't know about the growth spurt, I think it's because they are sleeping through the night now, and not getting that 7 1/2 ounces. They have been eating 3-4 extra bottles of 3-4 ounces a day for the past almost 2 wks. I will play it by ear....maybe try a bite or two on a spoon if they keep wanting those in between bottles.
Thanks ladies!!!!! :-)
