    I tried to start my kids on solids at 6 months old but they all refused to eat until they were older. My first didn't eat until 9 months, second was 11 months, third was 8 months. My oldest two had allergies, my oldest still has several anaphylaxis allergies, my middle child grew out of all her allergies. Both of my children with allergies showed symptoms at 3 months (eczema, from the food in my breastmilk, so they have always had that exposure to food), and my third never showed signs of allergies.
    I honestly don't believe it was the delay in solids that caused my older two to have allergies. My oldest's most severe allergy is to tree nuts, something I snacked on almost daily during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I never ate peanuts and she has no peanut allergy. So if I wanted to base an assumption on my child's allergies, given there is no family history, there's far more chance the early exposure caused the allergies. Actually, when I was pregnant with my second I was advised to not avoid the foods my oldest is allergic to during pregnancy, as they were finding that when mother's did this, the subsequent child ended up being allergic to the foods they substituted with (eg. first child allergic to wheat, mother eats buckwheat next pregnancy and that baby is allergic to buckwheat, but not wheat).
    Sorry for the essay!

    Dd started at 4 months.
    She has sever egg allergy and a milk allergy (the milk allergy was from birth though, CMPA)
    She also had dust-mite allergies which sets off eczema, and she has asthma which they think pollen etc is an allergy trigger

    DS - at 8 weeks on Dr's recommendation and has/had food intolerances and allergies

    DD - at 6 months and has/had food intolerances and allergies.

    Both kids were under the care of an immunologist/allergist specialist and he has different ideas as to the causes of allergies and intolerances besides the overuse of AB's etc.
