I don't mean to be controversial here, but if so many people intro. solids before 2 mos. (that other poll) then why don't their babies have any troubles. KWIM? I'm being so careful and it was such a heart wrenching decision to let my son try yogurt at 5 mos. (pure bliss for him
). I worried about allergies, loss of nutrients, etc. But, I followed HIS lead. So, what's up w/feeding your baby at 2 mos? I doubt they demand it. So, do moms do this to make them sleep longer? It must work or they wouldn'd do it, right?
I mean, really, why do they do it? If it didn't work, wouldn't they stop?
And, if so many moms are doing it, it can't be wrong. I know that sounds moronic
, but I don't get it. Is it just the #s and that % of kids who would have allergies are more prone if they're exposed earlier but can avoid them if intro. later?
I look fwd to reading Mothering this month-diet and ADhD.
Another issue, flip side, I let my kids play in the dirt at a young age. Lots of those other moms would be shocked! But, my kids are, and will be, just fine despite the grime and germs.
