    Default *spin off* when did you start solids and do your kids have allergies

    Just my opinion that the later you start solids the more chance of allergies. Curious to know...what age did you start solids and do you children have allergies

    DS was 3 months and no allergies
    DD was 4 months and no allergies

    I started my son on solids at 4 months and he was diagnosed with a severe nut allergy at 11 months. He was exposed to peanuts a few times before.

    DD4 (All started solids at 6 months old and none have allergies or intolerances).

    The last 3 daughters all started solids at 6 months after being exclusively breastfed till then and none have allergies. DD1 was formula fed from a few weeks old and no allergies either.

    6-7 months and yes they had allergies

    but I knew they had allergies and intolerances well before then by reactions they had to foods through my breastmilk so I knew what to avoid.

    DD started with tastes of stuff around 3.5months but nothing proper until 4.5months. Then she really started going for it around 6 months. So far she hasn't shown any reaction to things but she's still only 8.5 months and hasn't officially tried nuts yet.
