Should I Add Rice Cereal to My Baby's Bottle?

Babies who often spit up sometimes benefit from the addition of rice cereal to the formula bottle, says California-based pediatrician Carey Chronis. “The babies most likely to benefit are those who seem to spit up after each feeding, usually while being burped, but are otherwise happy and are gaining weight well,” Chronis says. You should always consult with the babies' pediatrician before changing a newborn's diet. Babies who seem to be in discomfort when spitting up or are not gaining weight appropriately should also be evaluated for more severe reflux or other medical problems, Chronis recommends.
