Why when we talk about introducing solids does everyone automatically assume the only solid available is corporate products at the store?
People with private gardens should mash up some of their produce (after testing it themselves first) and offer them to their baby. Green beans, cooked
soft carrots, babies love this stuff typically.
Every thing you do affects the babies growth mentally and physically.
Giving them food to play with increases their abilities significantly, and you don't need a scientific study to realize that.
The later you wait, the less opportunity the child's early development has to prosper.
If you have a kid you will know, early on when trying to introduce solids for a child, 99% of it gets on their face and not in their belly. This is
true, and funny.
But there is no logical reason to hold off on it. It does not replace breast milk because the kid isn't eating barely any of it anyway. He/She will
still be begging for the milk, you can be sure of that.
