Re: Start rice cereal?
Don't put cereal in her bottles, it is a choking hazard. I don't think you are going to find many advocates of rice cereal on this forum. We did finger foods from 6 months on, no cereal at all, because, as mommal said, it isn't really nutritious. Even my pedi said that cereal is more of a tool to teach babies how to eat off of a spoon, but that is all.
As she gets older BFing her will be easier, faster, and more spread out. You will eventually learn how to get her to latch on while you are doing other things so you won't feel as tied down. She will soon get over being so distractible, too, making life easier.
ETA: I just saw in the original post that you plan to BF for 6 months. The first 6 months are the hardest! I wouldn't advise putting yourself through those first hard months then weaning, because then you are missing the months where BFing is much easier than bottle feeding. This is just my opinion Stick with it, it gets easier.
