Q.

Starting solids

Hi doc,

Why is it that some doctors say that you can only start solids at 6 months. I have started my Lg this weekend and she is just over 4 months. Is it bad for them to start before 6 months?

Most babies start with solids at 4 months. It is usually recommended that allergic babies only start solids at 6 months.
