    Default Peas and Lentils

    With all of the best of intentions and withholding lots of foods from my LO, I got it wrong...I've been giving her some pea soup and lentil soup for a couple of weeks. Each time it was only a couple of spoonfuls and I didn't see any bad reactions.

    Should I stop and wait till she's older (she's 9 months now?)

    I'm basing it on Kellysmom's chart

    If there hasn't been a reaction, I wouldn't stop. We gave 9 mo old peas and beans and had no problems. Actually peas are one of her favorite things to eat! Keep on feeding!

    We haven't tried soup or lentils yet, but Thomas loves English (green) peas and blackeyed peas. He's also 9 months old.

    i'm so confused by all these different guidlines. the kellymom one says, for example,wheat at 9 months, othhers say 12 months and here in the uk it's ok after 6 months.

    From the back of a book I have by the author of that chart:

    .... experience as both a researcher and practitioner

    .... educator, author, researcher and clinical counselor with over twenty-five years of experience dealing with the biochecmical and immunilogical reactions involved in food allergy and intolerance.

    .... formerly head of the Allergy Nutrition Program at the Vancouver Hospital and Health Science Centre

    .... currently runs a private practice in food allergy management in British Columbia and is an adjunct professor in the School of Family and Nutritional Sciences at the University of British Columbia.

    ... she holds a PhD in medical microbiology and is a registered dietitian

    The book I have says as intro to the table:

    "This scale has evolved over many years, incorporating information from a wide variety of sources, and is revised each time more information about the allergenicity of foods appears."

    I think it depends on whether you're looking at info that is generally about when to introduce various foods, or info that is written for a baby with a high risk of having food allergies based on parents / family history of allergies.

    FWIW - neither DH or I have any history of food allergies (I have environmental allergies) BUT because it made me more comfortable we mostly followed the guidelines for the allergy baby. And boy am I glad that I did because it turned out that DS has multiple food allergies. Talk about super duper mommy instinct!

    Thanks Chazzi - no need to apologize for being out of sorts

    I wanted to add that the chart indicates foods that are less likely to be allergenic, but that it is possible to have food allergies to ANYTHING.

    There is a mom here who has a LO that is ana to pears (which are considered to generally be one of the least allergenic fruits).
