I did 1 oz of formula (1oz water and 1 scoop of formula) with however much cereal I needed to make it a little thick, but still runny. I feed him as much of that as he would eat (usually the whole thing) then I moved up to 2oz of formula with however much cereal , now we are on 3 oz of formula with however much cereal. He will be 6 months this week and I am going to make peas today. YAY!!!

When I started Blaise on cereal, I made him 4 oz bottle with 2 oz water, 1 scoop of formula, and then add enough cereal to make it kinda thick but still runny. He loved it, and drank the entire bottle every night before bed. Then I moved him up to 6 oz bottle. Now he is at 9 oz bottle of cereal. He is 7 months old.

Being the third kid, I don't really measure. I just pour some cereal in a bowl, and then add formula till it's the right consistancy for Jake. Then he eats it from a spoon.

We started Jake on fruits recently as well, so sometimes we mix the cereal with fruit instead of formula.
