Rice cereal debate


Hi there!

My baby is a month old today, and my mother in law is insisting on adding rice cereal to her bottles when I feed her this way. I have been breastfeeding and pumping so family can help out as much as possible, plus building supply for return to work. My little angel cries and feeds a lot during day, like every hour almost, and she insists it is because baby is starving. Her doctor (39 years ago) told her to add it to the bottles and she swears it kept them sleeping all night long as newborns (her two sons). We have been going back and forth about it, so I wanted to ask and see if anyone else has added rice cereal this early on? It seems to me she would not be able to process it quite yet as she is struggling with just my milk most days!
