New infant and toddler feeding guidelines released

In Canada, there was a joint taskforce of Health Canada (the Canadian equivalent of the FDA), Dietitians of Canada, the Canadian Paediatric Society and the Breastfeeding Committee for Canada that has pretty much turned everything I learned about feeding my infant on its head. And you know what, it makes a LOT more sense to me! For my 2 boys, I followed all the old guidelines, and they were worse eaters and had food allergies. For my daughter, I followed my own instinct, started feed at six months (not 4 or 5 months) and gave her allergenic foods earlier, and she has always been my best eater. What do you think? Are similar changes coming in the US or elsewhere?

But our kids don't differ! Especially in the US and Canada, I mean, it's a very similar culture. So it makes me wonder why there would be differences. Maybe it's political.

    It seems to say 6 months give or take a few weeks, so I think 5.5 months would be fine too. I think 4 months was too early for my kids.

    I'm a working mom of 4. My husband, kids and I live in Toronto, Canada. I love to read pretty much anything I can get my hands on, am addicted to chocolate and kissing my kids' necks (they all still let me do it!) and am a bit of a political junkie.
