So far baby hasn't shown any signs of food allergies, but we haven't yet done any of the highly allergenic foods yet.

Baby is now 8 mo old and turns out to be a major chow hound. I'm sure baby would like to go faster with solids but we're keeping it slow.

FWIW - the TENDENCY to have allergies is inherited and NOT the specific allergy. DH and I have no family history of FOOD allergies but I've got lots of environmental allergies. This means DS2 has a good chance of having some sort of allergy, but not necessarily foods like his big brother.
Thanks for the link. Its going to be helpful.
