Stop the food. At 4 months, she's still too early for food. To start solids, baby needs to be 6 months, be able to sit unsupported, have a good pincer grasp, and have lost the tongue thrust reflex. Until she's met those milestones, she is NOT ready for solids. When you do start solids, you have to give breastmilk first, then the solids. For the first 12 months, the main part of the baby's diet needs to be breastmilk or formula.

Yes this exactly.

No. Her body is not ready, you are hurting her delicate digestive tract by giving her something she isn't ready to handle yet. If she is hungry, nurse her, that is all she needs for the first 12 months anyway, until a year and over, solid food is just extra, it shouldn't be her main source of calories.

That's rude? She's a knuckle head. As in someone who doesn't think things through. If she had she would have consulted her Dr. Before deviating from the advised diet. And now her child's having digestive issues, instead of consulting her physician where is she CM asking for advice.

Yes, name calling is rude. And she may well have asked her dr, too many pedis hold to the old guidelines, which were starting solids at 4-6 months. And it's Sunday night, not many dr's offices are open.
