1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
I would question why so soon.
In previous years when homemade formula from cow milk was routine, early feeding was necessary to improve nutrition. Now we understand breast or formula alone is fine & allows baby to develop motor skills that improve their transition to solids.I like to start @ 6m & making your own is a great way to avoid some of the additives & preservatives in commercial products.
