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?
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.
LadyCatherine: THe one i had heard included kids with family history of allergies (I have tons of allergies, that's why i was surprised and a little confused... im trying to go back to read the details, but i just can't find it anywhere)
"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."
