Re: S/O Side-eyeing infants being fed food

  • This is making me wonder when my mom started us on solid food..... I'd ask her but she wouldn't remember. =)

    I want to wait because to me it's a sign of DS getting big and growing up and I want him to stay a little baby forever. Haha!

  • They actually talked about this study on the news last night...I'm glad my DH got to hear it from someone other than me :)  I don't think he really believed that the recommendation is really to wait until 6 months.

    I already told him that we

  • I can not imagine starting solids as early as some of those moms.  My plan is to EBF until DD is 6 months old, then we will slowly start introducing solids. Her pedi already said she wouldn't advise we start on solids until 6 months.

  • Yeah, I don't understand what the hurry is. I didn't plan on anything but formula until 6 months.

  • Thanks for sharing! Our pedi is now recommending not starting on solids until 6 months

  • I feel like because I've fought so hard to make breastfeeding work for us there's no way I'm giving it up before 6 months!
  • Yep...someone I know started their lo at 4 months and they had so many problems. And, their pedi told them to start. 

    Its a shame when providers just don't keep up with the data.

  • Solids are such a pain. I don't know why anyone is in a hurry. We started DD1 around 7 months, with avocado and banana and later added rice cereal only because of the iron.
  • Yeah I saw this in the news too. Pedi for us told us 6 months and while DH fam are the only ones that don't understand this, whatever. Ha.

  • Just had C's 2 month appt and our doc said 6 mos for breastfed babies. She said don't hurry it and I'm inclined to agree. My hubs kept trying to sneak baby food this weekend while we were visiting him and I wanted to brain him. Babies don't eat fettucine!

  • At our 2 month appt, our pedi also mentioned that when we come back for DS's 4 month appt we can then start talking about solids...but TBH, I really have no clue why we need to rush into it when DS does just fine on formula. With all of the recent informa

  • Our pedi said that if she starts getting interested in our food after 4 months we could start her on solids, but to really try to wait until at least 6 months if we can. Which is also what we plan to do. I was also really surprised that she told me that I

  • Back in the 60s a big name Pediatrician pushed solids early, like by 2 months early. This was still going strong in the 80s as I was fed bananas at 10 weeks. I lived but I certainly wont do the same lol I am pretty sure we'll do baby led weaning...she alr

  • With DS#1, we started at about 4.5-5 months.  But only because he was super interested and started grabbing at our food and bringing it to his mouth.  We never did cereals though, and what he got before 6 months was never meant to be a meal, but

  • I'm in no hurry either. The pedi at my son's 2 month appointment suggested giving him 1 tbl spoon of cereal a day at 4 months (watered down with formula) just to get him used to swallowing something more solid but stressed it had no nutritional value and
