Hi everyone! My little one has only just turned 3 months, so in my opinion is not ready for any kind of solids at the moment. Plus he still has his tongue reflex so obviously isn't ready. But a friend of mine whos baby is 3 months also has been started on solids already.. My question is for those who have started their babies on solids before the recommendation of 4 months and what were your reasons for doing so? My MIL is pushing me to start the little man on farex ( which i dont want to ) she tried to make me give it to him when he was only 6 weeks!!! My mother on the other hand wants me to wait till he is 4 months ( i am going to wait till 4 months as i asked ou doc and she said to wait )
So i want to hear from those who did start their babies on solids before 4 months, and why you chose to make that decision. I have heard a few people with babies have started a little early but i had the impression it 'could' stuff them up so to speak?
Sorry im a new mum and i have no idea about all this stuff.
Thankyou in advance xxx
