Tuesday Open Thread

March 26, 2013

Happy Tuesday!

The CDC says many infants are being fed solid foods too soon. Apparently, the American Academy of Pediatrics has revised its recommendations and now say babies should eat nothing but breast milk or formula until they’re 6 months old.

All I can say is, that seems like a long time to wait for a bit of oatmeal or mashed banana. DD started rice cereal at 3 months and gobbled it right up, like she had just been waiting for it; DS held off longer, and was closer to 5 months before he seemed ready for solids. What say you? Do you think these recommendations are realistic?

Also in the NYT is a recurring column called Making It Last, which interviews boomer couples who have been married at least 25 years about their secrets to a lasting marriage. I have enjoyed reading them.

Do you have any marriage tips to share?
