Anyone else going through this.
Very healthy, skinny (he's almost 27 inches long) boy eats cereal twice daily 3 heaped table spoons each time, with formula mixed, and a 6 oz bottle every 3 hours..

Contrary to popular belief, cereal won't make a baby go longer between feeds, and at 3 months his digestive system really isn't ready for cereal or any solids, and can actually lead to problems.

Have you tried feeding him more than 6 oz at a feeding? Will he take more? At this point if he won't, that just may be the way he metabolizes formula and as he gets older he will go longer periods between feeds.
