Early Feeding of Solid Foods to Infants May Lead to Health Risks

New mommies probably need to be a little more careful about feeding solid foods to their babies. A research by CDC or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that introducing complementary foods to infants too early may put them at health risks.

However, a recent study conducted by a nationally represented group in the US revealed that majority of the infants feed on solid or liquid foods sooner than the recommended time.

The study has been published in the journal, Cell Biology by researchers at Princeton Baby Laboratory. According to the researchers, “Baby talk is more than simply ‘cooing’ with the baby. It plays a major role in development of the child.” The incomprehensible language with the adults helps the child to grasp all language complexities. It allows them to connect with the people and the world around. The new study has shown that motherese is a ‘universal form of communication’ in different languages, mostly used by mothers. It’s just that mommies use different timbres (tonal quality) while [...]
