@Michelle5 - A new baby is hard. You're tired, it's overwhelming, and everyone wants to give you advice.
However, I think what we are all trying to say is that what your husband is doing is dangerous. I assume you're taking your child to the usual nurse appointments? Or a GP for immunisations at the very least?
If so, please please get them involved. If not for you, for the sake of your child.
My ds is getting all his immunisations but dh husband dont think we should take him for check ups...ds is due his next vaccines in 3weeks so i guess ill find out then how my baby is doing,im doing everything i can to be a good mother i just somehow ended up with a man that can be little bit controlling
my mothers group mostly started solids at 4 months. I've held off to 5 months and am taking it very slowly. I'm really only doing it now because I start back to work in sept and want ds to be familiar with a few solids. I'm not weaning, milk feeds are still his #1 nutrition source. the solids are just for taste/texture.
I'm quite confused about the current advice and guidelines, as there seems to be a lot of conflicting info out there...from 4 months, 4-6 months, from 6 months ???
people in mothers group have been saying their giving meat and yoghurt and their bubs aren't 6 months. to me that's wrong?? I thought those items were definitely only after 6 months?
The current advice is 'around 6 months, but not before 4.' Obviously if your healthcare provider advises you to start that early than you should, my comment was more that you shouldn't take advice from lay people when it comes to starting that early, only from your dr.
