Really sorry to say, please take a 2nd opinion from another Paediatrician. By 4 months their digestive system is not matured to take solids or other foods. Till 6 months only breastfeeding or formula.

At 4 Months the baby's digestive system is not completely developed please don't start anything before the completion of six months. Its not advisable. Exclusive breast feeding is recommended. If required take a second opiNion from another doctor.

I agree...4 months is too early to start with solids. If the baby is exclusively breast fed you don't need to start now...

Actually i m working mothr. My leave vl be complete aftr 2 mnths. Dats y i consult vd doc.

Yes agree with mom's. It's way too early. Please feed baby Breastmilk exclusively till 6 months completion.
