  • Why do you say 'no bashing'? Because you know it's too early to start solids? If so, then why are you thinking of doing it? Introducing foods too soon can lead to allergic reactions that wouldn't happen if you waited longer. Their digestive systems are immature, and they can't even swallow yet. Talk to your doctor before you start anything like that.

  • You shouldnt give her anything other than breast milk or formula because her digestive system isn't ready for it. If you start giving her other foods, she won't get the nutrition she needs from milk.
    Have you talked to your doctor about this?

  • sorry, I didn't mean to say they can't swallow, because obviously they're swallowing liquids.. they can't move solid food to the back of their mouth to swallow it yet. Wait till 4 months at least!
