Re: First solids, how much?

There aren't any real "rules". After the first 1-2 days, I just eyeballed it. Pour some cereal in a cup/bowl, add enough milk to get a consistency that seems good, feed it to baby. You can make it as thick or thin as your baby likes. As for quantity, I would make what I thought dd would eat, and then feed her until she stopped wanting more. The amount she would actually eat varied quite a bit from day to day. The only thing that would overrule baby's appetite is that I would have cut back on the cereal if she had gotten constipated (but that didn't happen).
