I was told never to put cereal in a bottle.. It is a choking hazard...
has tips on when to tell a baby is ready for cereal and baby food.. A doctor usually recommends them be at least 4 months of age.. This way their digestive track is a little more developed and the are less likely to develop food allergies..
First start off with Rice cereal and give that for a while. Then upgrade to Oatmeal.. Next move onto veggies... Try one new thing at a time and wait 5 to 7 days before trying another food.. This way if baby has an allergic reaction it will be easier to pinpoint... Then move to fruits... The doctor told me that not to give a baby food with meat in it until they were at least 8 months old...
Go here and it will tell you all you need to know
