is it okey if i mix infant cereal to his milk rather than feed him with cereal and milk differently? i can hardly feed my baby he moves everytime, he cannot focus on eating. so i decided to mix the cereal into his milk. am i right doing that? to all moms out there , how do you make your baby focus on eating?

I started mixing cereal to my babys milk at two mo.she kept spitting up and after going threw every formula there is I tryed the cereal and it worked and alot of babys just have to much on the mind to eat so what ever works for you do it try alittle every time and dont push it evey child is not the same dont push them let them make there own time line.My first child did every thing fast and the second one is laid back he is two and he tals very little am I worried ?No he can talk when he wants so what do I care if right now he doesnt have much to say one day he will say much more than I want him to lol

It would all depend on how old the child is.I did mix small amounts of ceral into my sons milk but only when I got the go ahead from my doctor.Some children mature into eating habits later than others.If you are just trying to introduce food to him it may be that he is not ready and you should stop and try again in a week or so.Like I said it all depends on his age.Hope this helps!!
