Re: Dr. wants 4mos old on puree already?

I don't think *I* would do it. I understand his concerns, and 20 years ago, we did start babies on baby food at 4 months. But, really, at 4 months, they just weren't ready to swallow baby food. They have that tongue thrust thing for a reason. Something strange goes in, the tongue pushes it back out. It's not because the baby hasn't learned to eat...it's because they are programmed to keep things out that shouldn't be there until it is time.
