    @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.

    I'd imagine it's only four months on Drs advice, or else all of the literature would say 4-6 months.

    that's psychological abuse. I suggest you bring this up with your MCHN/gp. will you be taking ds to his vax on your own?

    Dont let your dh stop you from getting your ds checked by a chn or gp you have the right to take him weekly to get weighed and checked. A chn is also great to talk to if you have any questions or concerns.

    Most of my mothers' group friends are being told by their pediatricians to start solids at 4 months. So this info may have come from a professional

    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.
