To all our wonderful friends and followers – Happy Thanksgiving to you all and your loved ones. Your table is set and the house has an aroma of Thanksgiving festivities.  Your newborn is not yet 6 months old. Should you give them solid foods?  Do you know the answer?

  • Giving solid food before 6 months can cause increase in weight gain and lead to childhood obesity 
  • Giving solid foods can lead to type 1 diabetes and eczema
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics says 4 months of age is allowable but recommend waiting until 6 months of age
  • If the child is expressing the need to get to the food on your plate – let them

Wishing you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving from our family to your family!
