That should NEVER be done. Those poor babies are at such an extremely high risk for food allergies and other health issues. A baby isn't meant to have any solids until the gut closes which doesn't happen until 6 months.

Many people just don't realize how small a baby's tummy is. At birth, it is only the size of an adult's thumbnail. Yes, that small. By the time they are 6 weeks it is just about the size of their fist. That is why babies need to nurse so frequently. They don't have a lot of storage capacity!
