I honestly think there is far too much hand wringing around first solid foods. I say, as long as you're not starting them on big macs at 8 weeks then pretty much each to their own.

Patti Rundall, of the campaigning group Baby Milk Action, said moving to weaning at four months would be "a regrettable and backward step that is out of step with current scientific thinking".
She accused the paper's authors of taking funds from the babyfood industry. The paper acknowledges that three of the four authors "have performed consultancy work and/or received research funding from companies manufacturing infant formulas and baby foods within the past three years".

I agree with B2B regarding that article. What BS.
OP you asked the question but now you are shooting everyone's opinions down.
I would not trust all doctors advice without researching this yourself also as I have been given bad advice from several gps and a paed, which would have ended my breastfeeding relationship with my bub had I not have known better, having done my own research. I think you will be hard pressed to find any evidence supporting giving farex to such a young bub, but hey, your baby, your choice.

Also babies go through a growth spurt at 3 months, which may be why your bub is not seeming full.

No I am not shooting down others opinions as far as I am concerned it is each to their own and I have no right to judge or tell other people how to raise their baby, however I do feel as if my way of parenting was attacked and that everyone threw in medical advise when I had already said I was advised by a Dr. Also if you read my original question is wasn't what should I do? It was what do you do? And like I said I would never judge another mother as I don't know their situation but do feel as if I have been judged and lectured. Btw I do agree some post have been very informative and helpful

There are prominent paediatricians who are a bit more up to date with the advice on rice cereal...one such paed, Dr Alan Greene, is an expert and has written several books on feeding infants. He has also started a campaign against rice cereal as babies first foods (Here it is on facebook: "White Out").
This doesn't seem like a big deal to lots of people, I know. You are probably thinking "Jesus, it's just rice cereal!". I'm passionate about food nutrition though, particularly for children, so I like to spread the word where I can.
