It is recommended that babies should be fed only breast milk until the first 4-6 months and then they should start to eat additional foods. However, additional foods should not be started before the 4th month. The reason for this is that babies are not ready to take additional nutrients during this period because their gastrointestinal and renal functions are not mature enough. The biggest risk of starting additional foods such as cow's milk and wheat flour is that it can cause food allergy in the baby! On the contrary, when the supplementary foods are started late, many serious conditions such as increased risk of infection due to insufficient energy and protein intake, anemia due to iron deficiency, inability to learn solid foods and chewing and growth-development retardation due to inadequate vitamin-mineral intake can occur.
