Too-early solid food could lead to problems for babies

At least 40% of moms are feeding their infants solid foods far too early, according a new study published in the medical journal Pediatrics, and that may lead to problems for their children later in life.

Researchers wanted to know how many babies were being fed solid foods (including cereal and baby food) sooner than recommended, whether breast-feeding or formula feeding made a difference and why solids were being introduced early. When the study began in 2005,  the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which also publishes the journal Pediatrics, recommended introducing solid foods when babies were between 4 and 6 months old.

In 2012, the AAP changed those recommendations. Now it says babies shouldn't be eating solid food until they are about 6 months old.

Study and findings

As part of the two-year study, 1,334 mothers filed out monthly questionnaires about what their babies ate during the last week, says Kelley Scanlon, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and one of the study authors. Scientists then analyzed the data reported by the mothers to determine at which age babies were being fed solid food.

They found 539 moms, or 40% of moms, gave their babies solid food early. Previous studies had put that estimate at 19% and 29%. Researchers believe based on this study, they may actually be underestimating how many moms introduce solids early because the study was more likely to have older, more educated and higher income moms participating. "Mothers of lower socioeconomic status are at a higher risk of early solid food introduction," the study says.

Giving your baby solid food too soon has been linked to a higher risk of obesity and diabetes, according to the study. Also, "starting infants on solids before 4 months can lead to allergies and eczema," says Dr. Jennifer Shu, an Atlanta pediatrician and AAP spokeswoman who was not involved in the research.

Among the 539 moms who did introduce solids early, nearly 1 in 10 gave their babies solids before they were 4 weeks old.

Researchers found formula-fed infants were about twice as likely to be introduced to solids early, compared to only breast-fed babies.

Moms were also given 12 reasons to choose from to explain why they introduced solid food early. Among the top answers:
- 90% of moms said they thought their baby was old enough to start eating solids.
- 71% said their baby seemed hungry a lot of the time.
- 55% believed their doctor or another health care professional said their baby should start eating solids.

Scanlon cautioned that this last point reflected a perception that health care professionals were recommending when to start an infant on solids; researchers couldn't actually confirm that's what a doctor or nurse actually said.

Shu says she was surprised by the findings, but notes that some doctors and nurses may have been trained at a time when babies were fed solids earlier and says it's hard to change behaviors when medical information changes so quickly.

Bottom line

"There's a lack of awareness of what the recommendations are," Scanlon says, adding babies are not developmentally ready for solid food before they are 4 months old.

Some of these moms are getting information on when to feed their babies solids "from generations (ex. grandparents, nurses, friends) who may have started their babies on solids at an earlier age," suggests Shu.

According to the latest AAP recommendations, moms are supposed to exclusively breast-feed their babies until they are about 6 months old if possible, so babies can reap all the benefits of mother's milk including extra immune protection and possible protection for future chronic illnesses like obesity and type II diabetes.

Every baby develops at a slightly different pace, but there are some signs to look for to help parents figure out if their child is ready for solids:
- Is the baby sitting up? Can she hold her head up?
- Does your baby open his mouth when food comes his way?
- Is she big enough? (Babies typically double their birth weight by 4 months)
- Can he take food off the spoon and actually swallow it?

The takeaway

Parents need clear and accurate guidance on when to introduce solid food to their babies, and pediatricians and health care professionals need to support them, says Scanlon, by explaining to the parents that crying doesn't always mean the baby is hungry - it could also be wet, sick or lonely.

    I am a midwife in Australia. We follow the World Health Organisation (WHO) which recommend that babies have breast milk ONLY (no water/ juice etc) for six months. Mum produces EVERYTHING a baby needs in her milk, which changes with babies' growth, the seasons, whether it's a hot day or a cold day, it is always perfect for her baby. WHO recommend commencing solids at 6 months because that is when a baby's extrusion reflex stops being so strong and their digestive system has developed sufficiently to handle various food types. You can also check out the recommendations of the La Leche League and the Australian Breastfeeding Association.

    I mashed up food and gave it to my son when he was only a month old and he is now 5 and not over weight or have diabetes the only thing I didn't feed him was meats the only problem I have with him now is he would rather eat fruits and vegetables then meats wish is not a bad thing I think feeding him those sooner helped with not having to fight with him to eat healthy

      I didn't feed my older son until he was 6mths and he started on vegetables and then fruits. Even by 2yrs he would prefer his fruit and veg over a savory on his plate. I don't think age of introduction has anything to do with what they will eat. Mysecond didn't really eat solids until about 18mths and he loves his fruit and veg also.

    It can be hard for the mother to tell if the breast milk is enough for baby as it thins out over time. My daughter has gone through a few periods of difficulty because she was hungry. Once I got more food into her, everything calmed down. My milk ran out at 12 months and the poor thing really struggled because didn't like formula. I also thought the baby rice was just to get them used to eating. You can mix it with fruit and veg as a thickener and get multigrain cereals instead. You're meant to give them a wide range of foods to gradually replace milk, I'm sure no one just gives them bowls of baby rice all day! Anyway, talk to certain soft drink companies about pushing their products in developing countries if you're worried about obesity....

      Kerryn shouldn't be so rude.

      Out appears my milk has thinned out. I think it might be because my baby is getting bigger (4 months) and just eats more now. I'm exclusively breast feeding. Sometimes my baby gets kind of hungry at night when I don't have enough milk, but she won't drink from a bottle.

      Kerryn, I don't think she meant her milk was less nutritious, I think she meant she was producing less. The amount of milk a woman produces and how long her body will produce is vastly different from person to person. I've known plenty of women who simply can't produce enough milk to feed their child entirely and they must supplement with formula or who have received breast milk from a breast milk exchange with other women.

    i formula fed my child, and i went by the book never fed her any solids until two weeks before she turned 6 months. i didnt give her juice until she turned almost a year old. she now eats EVERYTHING and is healthy as a horse. Just because there are a few good stories and some people didnt notice anything wrong with their child from feeding them solids too early doesnt mean it always is. As this study clearly says they've seen higher rates in obesity, eczema and diabeties.

    I'm 60 and when my children were infants they were formula fed. The doctor advised me to start them on cereal at 2 weeks, fruit at 4 weeks, veggies at 6 weeks and meats at 8 weeks. None of my children or grandchildren are overweight, have diabetes or any other of the associated calamities.

      I am actually flabbergasted that doctor would tell you to do that Valerie! I am 61, and was a nurse and I knew back then that 6 months was the best age to start weaning for many reasons, not just because of the allergies either. We were also taught to give babies fruit and or veg first ... not cereal. Perhaps you were not in the UK ?

      I am 61 and have a child age 40 and one age 36. Both were formula fed and both were started on rice cereal at 6 weeks of age. Vegtables at 10 weeks and fruits at 14 weeks. Meat was introduced at approx. 18-20 weeks. They are both healthy, not over weight and have a good varity in their diets. May I say they were both happy, healthy babies also. They even got awards in school for perfect attendance.

    I have three children, my first daughter was a big 11lb baby she was so colicyand cried constantly. I had a 16mth old son when she was born and started him on pablum at 4 mths. Since she was so colicy my dr suggested i start her on pablum at 2mths. And almost instantly her colic went away! She was just hungry and my breast milk was not enough to fill her tummy. Neither of my children have health problems. And now my third child ( a girl) is 3mths and im thinking about starting her on pablum soon. I still breast fed all my children till they were 9 mths then switched them to a cup and warm whole milk. My children ( now9&8) are super healthy

    This article is absolute nonsense. Throughout the years recommended diets for babies have constantly changed there are no professionals on the matter. Your child will let you know what they are comfortable with and can handle. Some children develop faster than others and that is ok and totally normal. Putting a time limit and schedule as to what they can eat and when is ridiculous. When your child is ready for solids you will know. It’s ok to try things, my families gauge for years has been around 4 weeks introduce a little oatmeal with formula/breast milk. And guess what no obesity or diabetes.

    Breast feeding is like ping/pong and goes back and forth as to whether or not it is the best option. Years ago it was a negative and now everyone is pushing it. Unless you are pumping you have no idea what your child is really getting nor do you really know the quality of your breast milk. Some people eat nothing but garbage all day and then in turn give their poor kids that milk. If breast milk is so wonderful why do they recommend vitamin supplementation for Vitamin-D.? Majority of the population is low on vitamin-d because we spend far too much time indoors; we were designed to be hunter gatherers. If you have a different blood type than your child be prepared for jaundice and potentially having to leave your child under the lights at the hospital or start them on formula and problem resolved like magic. Bottom line is to eat healthy and try the breast milk first and if that doesn’t work go with the formula. Your baby will tell you which formula they like best. Again every child is different and thank god for that it would be a pretty boring world if we were all the same.

    I have spoken to countless mom's who said their breast fed children have more allergies and are generally not as healthy as the kids they raised on formula. Have you noticed the huge increase in allergies today and especially nuts? My theory is the foods we eat and the breast milk being pushed as the root cause. Go back 30-40 years ago that was rarely an issue when they were pushing formula and letting kids try different foods earlier in life instead of later. I mean kids can’t have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch or bring it to school, give me a break.

      Actually the push of formula and other "1st" foods tie into marketing campaigns by formula companies.

      Breast milk is evolutionarily designed to feed a baby.
      There is research now that shows that breast milk contains stem cells that pass through the gut wall and end up as cells through out the body in your child's 1st 6 months as well as greatly boosting their immunity.

      Common belief is that the increase in allergies in the western world is due to our excessive cleanliness and lack of exposure to germs.

      So while I agree with some things you said as babies don't need a schedule let them decided. The jaundice is incorrect. I nuresed both my boys my first has my blood type but my second has his fathers however the only difference is the positive and negative since we are all O. Both my boys had jaundice. That is mainly caused becasue of all the fluids the baby drinks before birth. And he does not poop enough after birth. My first I had to start formula riight after but continued nursing too his jaundice was not that bad since he pooped more after forumla was started. That is another thing breast milk is absorbed a good bit. Some times breast fed babys only poop once a week because most of the milk is absorbed. So that does not help the jaundice. My second we had a higher jaunide level but that was also because I nursed him and he did not have formula till 4 days after he was born instaed of the day after. Also my milk did not come in till the 4th day also and he had a bad latch. This all caused his jaundice to be worse. But he got better and we found a happy medium of half and half since I was not producing as much as he needed since he was eating 6 oz 1 week after birth.

      Also about the allerigy thing no breast feeding does not cause allerigies any dr will tell you that. I thing that it is mainly hereditary. They also have new studies out contridcting this artical and the study is from the new england journal of med that my ped told me about that they say that waiting to introduce the allergy causing foods later seems to be what causes more allerigies you can read about it here: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe1601412?af=R&rss=currentIssue&

    An interesting piece. However, the topic is much in depth than you describe. It's the WHO guidelines which suggest that solids should not start until 6months. And there has been recent research to suggest that starting later with solids actually leads to allergies and intolerances. One should also note that each child is different, and providing your baby can sit independently and swallow, then they can start. However food guidelines should be followed.prior to 6 months soft fruit and veg,no grains.

    Ridiculous. And by their own list of things to look for....most babies reach all those before six months. If the child is screaming because they are hungry, feed them. And they will only be overweight if allowed to eat all the wrong things. Fruits and veggies....especialy those you prepare yourself, won't hurt them.

    I find this article to be absolute b.s. My daughter was not exclusively breastfed, she was in formula as I did not produce milk and she was started in solids at four months and she was weened from formula and a bottle at 11 months. She has not had one allergy nor has she had many illnesses. She is now 4, almost 5, and is in pre k, she is considered at 1st grade level in school, she is the tallest one in her class, her weight is normal and is extremely healthy. She has had a total of 2 ear infections her whole life and one was caused from water in her ear from swimming. Has never had the flu. While my nephew was exclusively breastfed and did not have solids until 6 months old and he is sick all the time and has so many allergies it's not even funny. He is always at the doctor and on some sort of medicine. Plus some of the children that are in my daughters class who were exclusively breastfed are the same way as my nephew.

      I agree with you Sam..I have seen so many breastfed kids that are sickly..My kids and grands were all formula fed and off the bottle by 11 months eating what we eat they are all very healthy and smart, hardly ever sick and I have friends that breastfed and there kids have allergies and seem to be sick all the time. I have also read this many times..but know can can explain this all you hear is how breastfeeding is the best. I am 62 I was a Carnation baby in the early 50's I am so healthy..my friend not so much my best friend died not to long ago from breast cancer she breast fed all her kids. Strange!! I started my kids at four months on solids no one has allergies or any thing that they are claiming in this article.

      Sam thank you so much for sharing your experience. I was very surprised when I read about the general recommendation of 6 months exclusive breast feeding. As a pregnant mom, I appreciate all the feedback from everyone experience. I think you correct about the allergies correlation with 6 months of food avoidance... I watch the deers and they only breast feed for a month and starts to encourage their fawns to eat grasses and reduce milk intake, fawns are super healthy...

    I don't think this is completely accurate. All the side effects they mentioned are hereditary. I feed my first two kids early only one had diabetes and she is and never has been overweight. Now I waited more than four months for my youngest to eat solid foods and he has a slight case of asthma. I think doctors need something to do and waste money on trivial issues instead of spending the time and money on the more important issues such as cancer and curing diabetes.

    MY SON IS 3 1/2 weeks old weighs 10lbs 3oz can hold his head up alone and eats baby food like apple sauce, banana and sweet potatoe. I have put it in his bottle for a week now and did the same prior with my daughter when she was born and she's not obese nor does she have any health issues. It all depends on the mother, some mothers are for it and some will critise you for feeding it to you baby "too soon". No one can tell a mother when her child is ready a mother will know.

    I successfully breastfed my baby for 3 months and 3 weeks. then I decided supidly to give my son baby porridge one week before he was 4 months old. few days after, he got very bad eczema. we thought it was a fungus but if was infact eczema caused by the porridge. He still has it. So now im not sure what he is allergic to? everything??? I stopped for a while with breastfeeding cause i tought hes maybe allergic to whats in my milk... but then we found that hes reacting on the formula and went back to breastmilk. it has gotten better but only because we use a steroid cream! what should i do? Im trying to cut stuff out of my diet, but the eczema is just not going away! hes not in pain or anything but its just not going away. and he spits up alot... from very young tough... but im told thats normal because hes not fussy or anything. Not sure what i should do now!!

    This is very useful because I started feeding my baby at 3months being told that the baby doesn't get full out of breastfeeding only and most of the time my baby experiences constipation and I can't see her facial expressions that she is pushing out of pain you can even see a tear drop which makes me worried a lot and her weight is more by 2kg, my mom thinks it's normal but deep inside I know it's not and I want to give her breast milk and formula since I already introduced food to her is it going to be a wise move until she is 6months atleast ?

    What's so magic about ages 4 to 6 months? It's around this time that babies typically stop using their tongues to push food out of their mouths and begin to develop the coordination to move solid food from the front of the mouth to the back for swallowing.

    In addition to age, other signs can show you that your baby is ready for solid foods. Can your baby hold his or her head in a steady, upright position? Can your baby sit with support? If you answer yes to these questions and your baby's doctor agrees, you can begin supplementing your baby's liquid diet.
