  1. Baby Led Weaning

    My son had his six month appointment (almost 2 months late thanks to moving and insurance fun) this past week and the doctor...threw me for a loop. I was wondering if anyone has heard these and what thoughts you all think about this. I've been doing baby led weaning with him. We're not strictly W30 or Paleo at home but we eat according to what W30 taught us about our bodies. I have Celiac so the one nonnegotiable is gluten free at home. My son has does awesome with trying foods; the only things he didn't like were ground sausage and a jarred spaghetti sauce that were too spicy. He eats tons of sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, avocado, steamed/roasted veggies, little pieces of meat we're eating, banana, grapes, peaches...you get the idea. Lots of fruits and veggies, some meat, some fat (that kid loves mayo dip as much as I do, which is saying something), and the occasional grain (mostly white rice when we do have grains). He has a sippy cup of water at the table for when he eats 'people food' because the transition to solids was giving him a little trouble pooping initially. We give him water only when he's eating food, and not a lot. The doctor told us 1. no water until he's a year old - give him apple juice or gatorade if you need to give him a liquid, 2. no meat until he's 9 months old, 3. if he's having trouble pooping give him Karo syrup or [brand] baby suppositories. I understand the thinking behind the no water thing - electrolyte imbalance could be very dangerous for a baby. But he's always eating after a full nursing session and only gets water with meals. So his stomach has milk and food in it - the water won't give him an imbalance in the tiny quanitites he'd get it in. Meat...I can't find anything online about why this might be. My little guy mostly eats fruits and veggies right now but he loves to eat the chicken from chicken salad. Karo syrup...just...I can't. Suppositories...no. How is needing to give a small child a suppository to get them to poop somehow better than giving them a little bit of water with their meal? What is wrong with us?
