    milk before solids. always. 4m is too young to be dropping milk feeds, esp in favour of solids.

    I'm starting to get pretty worked up over this as I'm very passionate about the wellbeing of babies.

    girls in my mothers group are dropping milk feeds in favour of solids too and it's wrong. our bubs are 5-6m old. milk should still be their #1 source of nutrition.

    please do not drop milk feeds and offer solids after a milk feed, not before.

    also no lemon for babies. it's too acidic.

    I was starting to get a bit worried too, hence the post. I'm glad you're concerned too and its so nice to see you so passionate about babies' nutrition.

    I wasn't sure if I should have said anything, but I worry about other desperate mums who may come across this thread and think it's fine to give babies massive amounts of food instead of much needed milk.

    There is a huge difference between giving a baby a lemon to suck on or orange wedges and using a dash of lemon in a purée.

    I get that your passionate about this but honestly given most doctors and paediatricians give conflicting advice what other people give their kids is not my business no matter how passionate I am on this topic.

    I felt out of line writing about it last night. I spent ages typing something out but ultimately decided not to post it.

    For me, my kids first food was about simply acclimating them to eating solids. The addition of formula/breast milk enabled this as an easier process.

    meh I'd rather be seen to be out of line if it potentially helps one mum/baby. of course it's not my business who feeds what to whom, I never said it was.

    Everyone's opinions differ. You think I'm doing a bad thing? That is completely your own views. I've spoken to multiple doctors and specialists. I'm confident in the way I nourish my child and just for the record, milk feeds have not dropped at all. She just eats solids now too. She is happy, healthy and very very active and engaging. (Have been told this by professionals) she still has the same amount of milk feeds (breast milk)...everything is developing. Why should I keep her stuck when she is constantly changing, growing.?
    Development will be behind if I don't let her experience new things. Should i keep her inside until she's had all her inoculations and deprive her from fresh air and sun? Keep her away from the dog because it might have germs? The sooner she is exposed the safer she will be in my opinion..

    do what you like. I don't agree with it but she's your child and as the parent, you're entitled to do as you wish.

    Ok sorry it's a sore point as we put DS on solids really early because of his extreme reflux and I copped a lot of comments (all negative and hurtful) and it was a horrible time. But it was the right thing FOR HIM and was on the advice of his paediatrician.

    Yes you may help one mum but you may also hurt someone else. I agree milk should always come first but who knows why people do what they do. I'd always now ask first in case there is a good reason before assuming it was does out of ignorance (not saying you even say anything I meant more in the context of your mothers group).

    fair point. I stand corrected.

    my ds is extremely fortunate in that we haven't had any reflux issues so there's been no real need to move to solids too soon.

    I'd actually be happy to delay solids a bit longer but I'm going back to work next month and would prefer to have at least started solids before I'm back.
