You folks are just reading the poorly constructed headline and not reading the article.
The article clearly states there is nothing wrong with breast milk.
The problem pointed out in the article, is that many people wait too long to start trying solids with their kids.
This is almost certainly true.
I highly recommend keeping breast milk intake the same and not altering it.
But I also second the scientific report that claims the earlier you can start introducing solids the better off you are. This is plain common sense here folks.
Don't let the misleading headline fool you. It is designed by professionals to get your attention.
People ignore boring headlines. It's a fact.
Just remember to READ the article along with it.
