Do you follow your doctor’s orders?  According to a new study, many new moms may be feeding their babies solid foods too soon – and sometimes they’re just following their doctors’ advice.  According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, babies should not begin consuming solids until they are at least six months old.  But a newly released study in Pediatrics found that almost all of the new mothers surveyed (almost 93%) introduced solid food before six months, and half of these women said it was because their pediatrician told them it was time to introduce solid food.  Click here for the full story on NBC News Vitals.
