I agree that the doctors have the facts and the all the latest info on the matter. However, when I was born (1982) and when our parents were born, it was the norm to start introducing solids at 8 weeks! Mums were told to start with things like; watered down vegemite and chicken soup and mashed up fruit. I have no allergies and am very healthy, I don't think it's all bad if they are introduced slowly and with milk being the main source of food. Mums know their child best.
