    Please provide your husband with official information regarding introducing solids. He is obviously completely ignorant about the process and it can be damaging if introduced too early. Also note that this isn't actually 'weaning' so official information on the weaning process would be useful too.

    I feel like you also need to know that when people say 'only milk' at this age they mean ONLY breastmilk or formula, not regular cow's milk. Breastmilk or formula has all the nutrients and calories your baby needs for its rapid growth right now, anything else is incomplete and will cause problems, the least of which is cause him to drink less milk which he desperately needs. I really think you should both head to your gp or maternal health nurse and speak about this to learn more. I would loose my sh1t if my husband did this.

    Prob a bit early at moment but 4 mths is fine... I gave in as ds was unsettled at started a little rice cereal at 15w which helped heaps just a teaspoon once daily initially.... We only used rc for a couple of weeks then slowly fruits and veges.... Eggs r now allowed prior to 6 mths I think but I wouldn't start w them. Cows milk and honey are out til 12 mths but cheeses , yoghurt are OK after 6 mths....

    your husband is an ignorant fool.

    babies this young do not need anything besides breast milk or formula. as others have pointed out, their guts are not mature enough to handle solids and they will obtain all the nutrition they need from breast milk and/or formula.

    introduction of solids too early will cause more problems than it solves.

    what exactly is your husband's concern that he believes introducing solids will solve?

    I think 4 months is too young for solids really and would only start my baby under the guidance of a paed. even the MCHN advice can be conflicting and contradictory.

    my ds is 5 months and I've only just (quite reluctantly) started him on purées. so far he's had pumpkin purée, a bit of mashed avo and some mashed banana.

    please stop your husband from behaving so ignorantly and negligently. he will cause more harm than good at the rate he's going.

    Please take him to your next GP / maternal & child health nurse appt. Let him hear it from a professional.

    This is the best site around. Many medical professionals will send you here. Please show this to your husband.

    Another good site for official info is from the Sydney children's hospital - they have excellent fact sheets on a huge variety of topics, including when to start solids. Our family GP always printed these out for us.

    You should preface this that it is you're opinion that 4 months is fine, professional guidelines are around 6 months.
