My mother has started to feed mashed banana to my two-month-old. It's way too early to start solids. But here's the thing - until she started feeding them to him he wasn't pooping much, which is normal yes but seemed to make him cranky, not to mention resulting in huge poops, up to the chest type poops, whenever they would happen.
She wouldn't give him a full meal of banana, just a few spoonfuls, without the core, and then feed him my milk (this is while I'm working). His other grandmother told me she started her kids on solids at five weeks.
In short, my dilemma is that while I know better, it doesn't seem to hurt him, in fact it seems to be helping. What should I do.
