I can't believe my pediatrician just said this...
So I just got back from my son Tate's 9 month well visit. His growth parameters are perfect, his physical exam is fine. When the pediatrician asked me about his diet (baby led weaning except for yogurt-too messy), I told him how great Tate eats, lots of proteins, vegetables etc. I then mentioned that I had to cut back on the amount of solids I offer him because he wasn't breastfeeding as often as he should. He will eat huge amounts of food for a baby.
The doctor then told me that after 6 months of age, breastmilk isn't important. He then said that solids are the most important source of nutrients for babies after 6 months and I should not limit solids at all. I just stared at him for a minute and then said that until 1 year of age, solids should only be 25% of the daily calorie totals.
I have my MD and they don't argue with me so he just stared at me for a minute, then moved on.
What is truly awful is that he is giving this information to mothers who may believe him and stuff their infants full of all that junky artificially enriched garbage they put in the baby food aisles and cut back on the one great source of real nutrition for the baby. Ugh!
