The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care : Sally Fallon Morell :In his studies of isolated non-industrialized peoples, Dr. Weston A. Price formulated the dietary laws necessary for ensuring the health and vitality of our children, generation after generation. This compendium of practical advice also addresses parental concerns about interventions during pregnancy and birth, vaccinations, and conventional medical practices for newborns. A section devoted to the illnesses of childhood explains the role of fever in strengthening the immune system and provides detailed instructions on natural therapies for everything from autism to whooping cough. I remember so clearly standing in front of the pregnancy and child care section at the bookstore when my husband and I first decided to start a family, trying to figure out which books to buy. My joy and excitement were tempered by confusion and dismay over the excess of conflicting advice.

A recent online discussion that took place at NourishingOurChildren. Price Foundation recommendations for infant feeding. The debate centers around the best time to introduce solid food to infants. Most medical organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization and the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition recommend the introduction of solid foods sometime between the fourth and sixth month. All are in agreement that solid foods before the fourth month can predispose babies to gastrointestinal problems and allergies and that delaying introduction of solid food after six months may result in baby not getting all the nutrients he or she needs.
