My little guy has reflux at one point they tried him on a special formula that had rice in it to make it heavier. He did really bad with it (GAS) I told the doctor and she said yes that does happen with that formula. Anyway I was giving him the rice cereal to start him out on solids he did ok and actually liked it but I noticed after a couple of consectutive days of having it his gas was becoming an issue. I just stopped giving it to him and the problem resolved. Hes on sweetpotatoes now.

Has anyone else experinced this with rice cereal.

when I started Katie one solids, Rice cereal did NOT agree with her tummy at all.. she was gassy and fussy....so we ditched it and went to oatmeal, then introduced barely and she does not have issues with them....mylicon did help too....

I JUST started Aaron on rice cereal, and I have noticed that he's had a little more gas and burping. If I were you, I would try oatmeal and/or barely cereal. I think babies need the iron and such that is in cereal.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

He's had oatmeal and tolerated it better he just didn't like it as much. And I still plan on giving him the rice cereal he likes it a lot. I just won't give it to him on consecutive days.

We've had the same problem with plain rice cereal and mixed as well. It's frustrating!
