info on when to introduce potentially allergic foods
« on: September 02, 2014, 22:38:08 pm »
I have seen sooooo much information on the web about when to introduce foods to babies. I am wondering if any of you have found a good website that helps me understand when to introduce things such as eggs, strawberries, citrus, chocolate, milk, etc.

a good food chart would be great.

my DS is 10 months old and almost weaned from the breast. we are slow at adding new foods because i am scared of food allergies, but we are doing pretty well. He has eaten different fruits and veggies, oats, and now wheat, and seems to be doing fine.

just curious about a trusted website that has an easy food allergy chart and when is good to introduce it.

Do you have any history of food allergies in the family? We do (kids have 3 first cousins with anaphylactic allergies to multiple foods)so with the first two we followed the recs of the time which was to intro slowly and leave off stuff like egg/nuts/seafood until after one...but five years later and the recs have done a 180 degree turn - with DD3 we were to intro everything starting at 6 months (except honey) and keep feeding the foods regularly.
