"Health experts and breastfeeding experts agree that it's best to wait until your baby is around six months old before offering solid foods."New research indicates that it is best to wait until the child is six months old before introducing solid foods. This is a change from the older recommendation of 4-6 months. Many health care providers are not adhering to these new guidelines, but there are reasons why even 4 months old is too young.
The World Health Organization (WHO), The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and Health Canada are among those organizations that recommend a whole six months of exclusive breastfeeding.
