Been to visit my v pg friend and she has an Annabel Karmel Guide to the First Year book given to her as a gift. I was flicking through it and in the "4-6 month period" she starts on weaning. Apparently you should start with one meal a day, building up to 3 meals a day by 6 months. Apparently delaying solids till 6 moths can make your baby fussy about lumps too
I was hyperventilating [overeaction emoticon]!
Anyway, aside from the usual early weaning or not debate, surely she can't publish this info now - it should be updated surely?
AK goes on record pretty much every time she is interviewed as saying that some babies (which she says with heavy overtones of "most babies") just can't wait until 6 months. And you should hear her on BLW... [roll eyes emoticon]
Hear AK on BLW - it's hilarious how her main objection is that a baby could choke on a lychee stone. Ever since listening to this I knew that BLW was the way to do and I couldn't trust AK's advice. When was the book published?
