  • That depends.  Is the baby growing like he or she should?  What is the baby eating?  Under 1?  SO, how old is the baby?

  • No. Not abuse. Following your doctor's directions. If the child is growing appropriately and gaining the correct amount of weight, there is no problem.

  • Then no, it's not abuse.  At least, not in my opinion.  As long as the Dr. says he's fine, thats all I would worry about.

  • No. The APA (that's the initials, right?) actually says wait until they are 1 to give them any type of food besides formula or breastmilk.
