My boyfriends aunt (who has nursed 10 children, no joke) keeps telling him to put cereal our sons bottles. I work 3 days a week, 12 hour shifts and my boyfriend is the caregiver and he's doing a great job. I just went back to work last week. And up untill today pumping and supply wasn't an issue. My son is having a growth spurt first of all and consumed an extra 4 oz. today than my boyfriend is use to. And I still had to come early because they ran out of milk. So he thinks our son is not getting full. I have explained growth spurts but it's not sinking in. So now his aunt told him to put cereal in his bottles and it will fill him up. I'm not comfortable with it and asked him to hang on thru the week untill the spurt ends and things will be normal again (until the next one).
Has anyone done this? I feel like it's not a good idea.
