Our family friend and trusted *super* naturopathic doctor recently told me that I need to eventually wean my now 2 month old when her teeth come in. I was shocked, and honestly so shocked that I didn't really even process what he said as the reason afterwards. I think he cited some study or something, but where are these studies?
It just seems weird to me because if her teeth come in early (say 4 or 5 months) she will obviously still need milk. But how can a natural doctor think that formula is better than breastmilk at any age??? Even if we wait until she is one, she would then start taking cow's milk...which is even weirder - how is milk from another species better than human milk for a human baby at any age?
Anyway, do any of you have any idea where this myth comes from? It just seems arbitrary and cultural to me, but not based on science (which normally this doctor is very well versed in all alternative/natural studies).
