I was just reading one of the widely reported articles about the worrisome risk of babies being fed solids too early. A new CDC report states that infants should be fed solid food at 6 months because giving solids any earlier might put baby at “a greater risk for developing chronic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, eczema and celiac disease.” Additionally, giving solids may decrease babies’ ability to get proper nutrition since they will ingest lesser breast milk/formula. The article I read happened to be from NBC News, but they all reported the same findings--- the Centers for Disease Control wants you to feed your baby solid foods beginning at 6 months.
Last year, three of the DC area's most prominent bloggers met and found that not only did they have a shared passion for all things local, but that they wanted to do even more. One year later, KidTrips Northern Virginia was born. Available in eBook or paperback, KidTrips is a complete resource of family friendly destinations and services in Northern Virginia. We're so thrilled to present this interview of Amy Suski, 1 of the 3 brilliant moms behind the book.
Babies spend most of their lives sleeping. And with all the information out there for new parents and the universal truth that babies should not be put to sleep on their bellies, helping baby to do something so natural and safe should be the easiest thing in the world. Right?
