My DS is 4mths and is 'failing to thrive'. Cut a long story & history short, we've been advised to try solids to help bulk him up.
So far he hasn't taken to the spoon as yet so clearly isn't quite ready to eat normally. Today our MCN suggested putting a bit of rice cereal in 1 bottle a day with my EBM until he's ready to eat himself.
I know years ago mums did it to try and help encourage sleep at night (old wives tale)....Is this common these days? Is it even safe?
