Feeding your baby before 6months?

My dd is 4 months old
Sits alone in set and holds head up alone
She watches food go in my mouth


The reason I want to start early she had poop issues we have tried everything

Ped given meds and all nothing works. (Mirilax sp,water enema,thermometer and ky etc)

I would love to be able to just feed her organic homemade prune mush...


Ideas? Comments?

And yes we bf I was put in icu 4 week pp for health issues from csection and was unable to bf or pump enough for her. Then they put me on meds that passed through bm and she couldn't have it and no there was no other med I could take at that time.

 

 

thank you all for taking the time for your input. I don't want this to be a bitch post lol....

 

I will talk to her ped monday at her check up about all of this and see what they say (will update then)

till then SHE POOPED lololol

4 months is common to start solids

I started all 5 of my kids on solids around 3-4 months.

4 months is when I started both of mine, and my 22 month old got over his constipation issues pretty quickly.

Starting solids this early is a bad idea. That is all I will say.

For what reasons? Brain development? Gastrointestinal issues?

I started at 4 months with my son. He was fine. He was on straight table food (and formula of course) by 8 months
