My daycare provider today said that Emily still won't take a bottle but she gave her a ton of cereal today and she was so happy to eat it. She mixed a serving of cereal with about 3 ounces of breastmilk and she ate almost the whole thing!
So my question is--is it okay for a baby to just have cereal during the day and then reverse cycle at night? I figure at least she's getting some breastmilk with the cereal. She hasn't really had that much cereal with me (no more than a tablespoon or so the past few days), but I try it after I nurse her. If she wont' take a bottle at daycare but will eat cereal, shoudl I just let her do that? I'm a little concerned because she hasn't eaten that much cereal with me yet and she LOVES it at daycare (according to the dcp). I just don't want it to shock her little system. but she said it was very much diluted with the BM. I'm just happy she ate SOMETHING-better than nothing?
