Are Babies Fed Solid Foods Too Soon?
Mon, 03-25-2013 - 7:40am

Most mothers may be starting their infants on solid foods months sooner than specialists recommend, mistakenly believing their children are old enough to graduate from breast milk or formula – but many say they’re simply following doctors’ orders, according to a study published today.

Parents should wait until their little ones are at least 6 months old before offering them solid foods, say many child-nutrition experts, including the American Academy of Pediatrics.

When did/will you start solid food with baby?
