Hi @ethanmcconkey, thanks for the warm welcome!
We have an infant that is between 4-5 months of age, so we ourselves are trying to figure out the right path on this matter. Currently, we are following our Pediatrician's advice and ignoring the AAP guidance. But it's a bit unsettling to see contradicting advice from otherwise credible sources — especially ignoring the guidelines of a body such as the AAP. We'd love more clarity/perspective soon on this for our own interests, yet also know it would be beneficial to many others given the lack of consensus and confusion I'm sure other parents and even healthcare professionals have faced on this topic.
