On paediatrician advice we started DD at bang on 4 months. Honestly, it was really a waste of time until nearly 6 months. She barely ate a thing and it was just frustrating. I think if they're not ready they just won't eat it! She is still mega fussy and only eats a little bit of fruit purée and rice cereal.
Next time I am not going to bother until I see clear signs of readiness rather than just basing it on age.

I am undecided as to what I believe on the whole waiting til 6 months or don't wait til 6 months theories. These studies all contradict each other sometimes which makes it hard!
I think I believe that if your going to have an allergy etc, then your going to have it, regardless of when your baby was fed. I have had 3 babies and have fed them all the same in regards to solids. One of my children has asthma and anaphylaxis & the other two don't.
Generally I think between 4-6 months depending on such a wide variety of factors. You know your baby best

And heat does not kill the spores so pasteurised or not it can still infect children under the age of 1 ( honey has far better health benefits raw anyway!)

I just can't see that study being did unitive, DD now 21 months started solids the day she turned 4 months old and still is intolerant to dairy, allergic to wheat, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts and sesame.
It's more to do with genetics than when food is introduced (though could be a combination of both)
