Babies below six months have immature guts. they cannot digest anything except breastmilk during this period. one may assume that there is no physical harm to babies if you start solids prior to completing six months. however, please understand that leads to many problems in the long run.. such as allergies, skin problems, less immunity, more bouts of cold, stomach bugs and vulnerability to changing seasons. parents would keep wondering how come their child falls sick so often when the real culprit is starting solids before their bodies were ready for it. please contact a bf friendly doctor. there are methods to increase the bm. in case you want to wean her off early, only think if formula as that is the only substitute to breastmilk before six months of age. ragi, cerelac, cow milk, curd.. all these actually replace the bm your baby takes and thus would only result in reduction of supply within you. for further reference, please refer a website called kellymoms. ita awesome for bf mothers... it encompasses and discusses most worries that moms confront during these tough times. I have a five month old daughter and this website has been a Bible for me! :) wish u the best! tc!
