Did the American Academy of Pediatrics come out very recently with a statement about the "order" of solid introduction, saying that other than honey, everything can be introduced from the start? Or am I so sleep deprived now that Im making up things?

L0L, I'm not surprised. Those organizations are just about the Last place to take advice!

actually they did some studies and found that introducing allergenic foods earlier (6 months +) caused less instance of allergies than holding off. so yeah, they AAP did change their stance on that. unless there is family history of allergies.

"Current evidence is insufficient to document a significant protective effect of maternal dietary restrictions during pregnancy or lactation. Nor is there sufficient evidence that any dietary intervention after 4-6 months of age prevents allergic disease. This includes delaying the introduction of complementary foods."

From an AAP press release in January of 2008. It's found under the heading "BREASTFEEDING, NON-MILK FORMULA MAY DELAY OR PREVENT ATOPIC DISEASE" at the link here: http://www.aap.org/advocacy/releases/jan08studies.htm
