Re: Family anti-BLS - rant/need some backup pls!
You can tell your mom that my pediatrician says that until age 1, solids are just for experimenting with new tastes, textures, and motor skills. They're not nutritionally necessary until the first birthday. After the first birthday, they make up an increasingly important part of the baby's diet, but the transition from needing only mama's milk to a majority-solids diet is a gradual one, with many babies not eating much solid food until well into their second year.
You might also want to ask your mom what she thinks babies ate before jarred foods were invented. Does she think caveman moms were pureeing stuff in their rock blenders?
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
