Increased risk of choking: Infants under 6 months old may not have the physical skills needed to chew and swallow solid foods safely, increasing the risk of choking.
Increased risk of allergies: Introducing solid foods too early may increase the risk of developing allergies.
Poor nutrient absorption: Breast milk or formula provides all the nutrients that infants need for the first 4-6 months of life. Introducing solid foods too early may interfere with an infant’s ability to absorb these nutrients.
Decreased breast milk intake: Introducing solid foods too early may reduce an infant’s intake of breast milk or formula, which can be important for their growth and development.
Overall, it’s important to follow the recommendations of a healthcare provider when introducing solid foods to an infant.
Introducing solid foods too early can have potential negative impacts on an infant’s health and development.
