    Default anyone not giving solids until 12 months?

    hubby and i have decided to wait until gracie is 1 year to introduce solids (DD1 has severe food allergies... dont want a repeat of that)

    I'm sorry I don't have specific info to share with you, but I have certainly heard of solids being delayed until 12 months in cases of extreme allergies. Hopefully someone comes on here with more knowledge of it and I would def. speak to the ped. about it. Good luck

    Have you thought about posting this in the Allergies forum as well?

    I've heard of benefits of delaying until 9mos, but nothing about waiting until 1yr.
