Solid Foods and Sleep: the Myth

Written by Jennifer Garden. Posted in Healthy Kids

Research indicates no difference in a baby’s sleep patterns when comparing those that ate solid food to babies not eating solid foods before bedtime. Early introduction to solid foods is not recommended by Health Canada before the age of 6 months. You can introduce solid foods between the ages of 4 to 6 months depending on your baby’s readiness to eat. Most guidelines suggest introduction of solids (complimentary foods) by 6 months of age.
