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?
