Re: Solids Timeline with BLW?
It's to make sure that there is no allergy. It takes 3 days for it to be fully through the baby's system, I believe. Foods like eggs, wheat, strawberries, and citrus are considered high-allergy foods. If you don't wait three days, and the baby eats several different foods in a short time period, and there is a reaction, you won't know which food caused the problem.
Food allergies run in my family, so I am being careful. If there is no family history, you might not have to be quite so diligent.
