Lincoln did the same thing; in the beginning, the amount he was eating was increasing so rapidly, I thought he'd be eating 7 or 8oz bottles by now! But he really hasn't changed much since he hit 4-5oz per bottle. Then some days he only wants a couple of ounces at a time and he'll just graze all day.

As far as the cereal, I think it's recommended to wait until at least 4 months to start it. We waited until much later than that with the bigger kids, just because the baby cereal has no real nutritional value so I didn't want to be filling their tummies with it. I do feel tempted to see if a bit of it might help Lincoln sleep a little more at night, just because I am SOOO tired and ready for him to sleep a little better. I'll probably wait though; his tummy seems really sensitive so I don't want to upset it. If I give him even 2oz of formula in an entire day of breastmilk, he won't poop for 2 days.
