Mamas on Bedrest: 6 Months for Solids

June 1st, 2015

Hello Mamas,

Last week I posted an article on our Facebook Page published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the article, the CDC reported that more than 40% of American infants are started on solids too early, many before 4 months of age. Reasons for starting solid foods ranged from “My baby seemed hungry” to “I wanted him to sleep through the night.”

This one post has received some 2500 hits on our FB page alone. Since it resonated so much with so many people, I felt it prudent to highlight the particulars of the publication and to clearly state why it isn’t a good idea to start infants on solid foods before 6 months of age.
