The CDC write
By the time he or she is 7 or 8 months old, your child can eat a variety of foods from different food groups. These foods include infant cereals, meat or other proteins, fruits, vegetables, grains, yogurts and cheeses, and more.
If the baby is not being given protein at every meal, is there any reason to prefer giving protein to a baby at breakfast vs lunch vs dinner? The only resource I could find which addressed this question was a blog which states:
Protein should be given at the lunch meal only until your baby is over 10 months old, when you can introduce it at dinner. The reason for this is that protein at dinner in a baby younger than 10 months can cause night waking as their body tries to digest the protein while they’re lying down and their digestive system has slowed.
I'm wondering whether that statement is true, and whether there are any other factors that make giving protein at a particular time of the day more desirable than other times?
