Weekend Quote 4 from The Don't Sweat Guide for Parents

Richard Carlson, Ph.D. debunks some common parenting advice in Chapter 39 of his book, The Don't Sweat Guide for Parents. Here's one of my favorite:

"Give your baby solid food if you want him to sleep through the night."

No foreign proteins here!
Introducing solid foods to a baby younger than four months can be potentially harmful. His immune system is working to keep foreign proteins from getting in and causing allergic reactions. Early introduction to solids -- before the system is ready -- may predispose your child to allergies.
