boo had her 4 month well baby appointment and weighed in at 16 pounds, 4 ounces!
although boo's pedi gave the ok to begin introducing solids, we've opted to delay solids until 6 months. kellymom has a great article on why its important to delay solids which highlights several reasons to delay including: giving baby greater protection against illnesses, decreasing risks of food allergies, giving baby's digestive system time to mature, and one reason which really sticks out to me...helps mom maintain her milk supply. according to kellymom, babies who start solids early tend to wean prematurely. im doing my best not to be a weaner so this reason alone is enough for me to delay adding solids to boo's diet.
