I'm just inquiring on if I could feed my 3 month old baby boy who is 16lbs and about 50cm any type of pablem or baby food. He feeds 150ml every 2 hours and sometimes still cries like he is hungry and I'm just looking to find something that could possibly be more filling.

Hello and welcome to eHealth Forum!

If your baby is 3 months old and still hungry after breast feeding, you can introduce other milk formulas available in the market for less than 6 month old infants. The packages have reconstitution directions which you can prepare to either bottle feed the baby or make him drink through a tea spoon.

It is too early to start cereals and processed meals. You can do so by next month. Hope this helps. Take care!
