• Infant's gastrointestinal tract has not or may not have matured enough to properly digest/utilize solid foods until around 6-8 months old. Some studies indicate that too early introduction of solid foods can increase the likely development of allergies. There is an increased possibility that the baby is fed food he can choke on. The mother might stop breast feeding too soon because of the introduction of solid food.
  • Alright, I heard that if you start your child on solids too soon it can lead to obesity later on in life. everyone has there own set point, when your below your set point your hungry and when you go above you are full. By feeding a baby solids too early you might accidently raise their setpoint so they need to eat more than the average child or baby.
  • Obesity, diabetes, allergies, eczema.
