    Formula has all of the nutrients he needs for his rapid development, carrot purée and eggs does not! Continuing to give him solids will ensure he's getting LESS nutrients because he'll drink less milk with solids in his tummy. Your husband is being ridiculous.

    There is a growth spurt/wonder week around now. Babies go through phases of needing to eat more, it doesn't mean they need solids. I suggest downloading the wonder weeks app which goes by your due date so that you at least have a guide of developmental phases and why he may need to feed more.

    yes it's probably a growth spurt...that's what babies do - they grow!! lots!

    so what if he's drinking more? that's what they're supposed to do. it's not a sign that they need solids.

    your husband sounds incredibly uneducated and pig headed. I'm very concerned for your ds right now.

    That's actually very dangerous @Michelle5. The fact that your baby is consuming less formula because your uneducated DH is forcing food into him means that he is NOT getting the nutrients he needs as the food is displacing formula consumption. This is so dangerous for a rapidly developing brain and body. You say your DH won't listen. I'm sorry that's not good enough. You need to do something here and take action to protect your child. You need to consider your baby as a 10 week old. There is no health professional that would sanction what your DH is doing.

    if your husband refuses to listen and continued to enforce such dangerous practice then as far as I'm concerned that's domestic abuse. and I consider it negligent if you as the baby's mother don't step in.

    agree with ginger millie, it's not an excuse and it's not good enough.

    Is this actually for real? I'm sorry but it is ringing alarms bells for me.
