  • From my doctor/family practitioner: IF they are able to sit unsupported, have good head control, and are REALLY interested in table food you can start introducing solids. Right now the recommendation is NO SOLIDS until at least 6 months old. 7 years ago the recommendation was start solids between 4 and 6 months.

    If you really need an authentic source try calling a local clinic/hospital, explain why you're calling and see if a doctor is willing to talk with you.

  • OH!! It's not that I don't know the answers, it's just that I need to cite them and reference them in APA format!
