We LOVE our ped to bits, he's the best in the city IMO. They have been so supportive of bf'ing and even of our vaccine choices. So my husband took our baby in for her 4-mo checkup and the dr asked, "So is she still just breastfeeding?" Husband: "Yep."
then he said we should start her on solids by the next appt (5 mos), preferably with fruits!
Everything I read--even the two handouts he gave DH--says if you start before 6 mos start with rice cereal and I don't even want to do that! Baby girl is only 11 lbs 5 oz (5th-10th percentile) but he didn't say a word about her weight, said she was growing fine and healthy. Blecch. I told DH, "Okay. We'll start at 6 months."
