No: Ideally, infants should be breastfed exclusively through the first 6 months. There is not much evidence for most infants (unless there is a family history of allergies and eczema) to support delaying the introduction of solid foods from 4 months to 6 months, however. Introduction of solids before 4 months of life is discouraged.
