Q.

Starting solids

My baby is 4 and a half months, I started giving him rice cereal at 4 months. He really has taken to it well.
He''s starting to get a bit more hungry now, I give him a 150ml bottle every 3hrs and his rice cereal at 8am.
I want to start introducing purity, but I''m not sure of how I should space the bottles when introducing solids and how much formula to give him.
His weight is 7 kgs.
If I give him a 150ml bottle at 6am and cereal at 8am, can I give him another 150ml bottle at 10am and purity at 12pm ??
