Will my infant sleep better if I put rice cereal in his bottle?
While it is true that bottle feeding with rice cereal adds calories and will keep a baby satisfied longer, I don't recommend doing this. Putting cereal in a bottle is a choking hazard and can be very dangerous.
Developmentally, babies are generally able to sleep through the night by 4 months of age, so hang in there. Your baby will be sleeping through the night soon enough.
