The big thing in medicine now is evidence based practice, doing things based on research not on what's always been done. To make recommendations they do big studies of studies. They look at all of the studies that have been done and then organizations make recommendations. The latest on infant feeding:
Exclusive breastfeeding for at or around 6 mo. Complementary feeding with breastfeeding remaining the main source of nutrition for 12 mo. Formula fed babies can start solids at 4 mo and formula should remain main source of nutrition for 12 mo (around 32 oz a day). Solids are for nutrition, not practice.
No cow's milk or honey the first year. No need for baby foods. No evidence to support waiting between foods. No evidence to support waiting on certain foods (including peanuts).
