Hi, my name is Christina and this is feeding a four month hold. Most moms have lots of people surrounding them giving them advice and telling them what their baby can and can't eat but there are some good guidelines from people who know to follow. At four months old, your baby's digestive system is still immature and The American Academy of Pediatrics and The World Health Organization say that you should not start any solids until the six month point. There's a good reason for this. The lining of your baby's digestive system is permeable. Particles can pass through which their body then says are foreign objects and attack. This can cause serious issues for your baby in the form of allergies. At four months old breastfeeding and formula are the perfect foods for your baby. If they seem to be getting hungry, all babies go through growth spurts and they probably just need more breast milk or formula. In general, your baby starts to show signs of solid food readiness around six months old. They are able to set up, not only grab food but bring it to their mouth. These are great signs that your baby is ready and six months old is a great time to start. Thanks for watching.
