I just came back from the paediatrician and he mentioned about the new age guideline to starting solids is 4 months. Apparently latest research done and found that there is now no evidence that delaying the introduction of food preventing the development of allergy. In fact, it is better to start earlier, but not before 4 months. It is the exposure, I guess. And best time to avoid allergies. I also read somewhere this new finding was just released in May 2016.
They have now reverted to what people had practised years ago. So paeds has recommended us to start solids in 4 weeks time (DS is 12 weeks now). Just a small amount, to test and get him try new foods. I don't know how I feel about it yet. DD started solids at smack 6mths. I'm looking to see if anyone else has heard about this and what everyone thinks of it. And also where everyone is with bubs starting solids.
