My DD just turned 9m yesterday and is exclusively breastfed. I have read that delaying solids can help prevent food allergies. My brother has severe severe allergies (all dairy, all nuts, all shellfish, mushrooms- pray for him it's hard!). Do you know of any articles or have you heard of anything where delaying solids is helpful and for how long to delay? If so, can you tell me about it? I'm not sure if we've waited long enough or not. Also, is there a benefit to giving her rice cereal now?
Thanks so much!
