A common question among many new moms is “when to start giving rice cereal to baby?” Although some parents have claimed that a little rice cereal or baby oatmeal in their baby’s bottle have helped their newborn sleep better, the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly encourages moms to only introduce these solid foods when their baby is between four and six months of age. When your baby is younger than four months, he/she should only be fed breast milk or formula as both are much more nutritious for babies at this age.
