    Dd was exclusively breastfed to 6months, then started solids. She had a gluten intolerance and outgrow it around 18months. I breastfed her until 19 months when she self weaned. No allergies since. I introduced nuts quite early too, around a year I think.

    All 3 boys offered solids at 6 months, none very interested until 7 - 9 months, none have allergies. All breastfed until 5yrs of age.

    DD has solids (fruit and / or veg purees) from the day she turned 4 months. She has eczema from 2 weeks old, was cows milk protein intolerant from early on, and had wheat, egg, tree nut, peanut and sesame allergy from very early on so I stopped bf at 4.5 months so she could go on soy formula.

    She has since out grown the wheat allergy and can now have egg baked into things, but we are too scared to try the others on her until her next skin prick test in August.

    The best link to allergies they have found is genetic. My father, my brother and I suffer terribly from hayfever, my brother and I both had childhood asthma and I had a dairy intolerance as a child.

    As you can see there isn't even any correlation between when solids are started an allergies (from this thread alone) let alone any clear evidence. Its either an old wives tale or completely anecdotal.

    Both after 6 months and through my pregnancies I ate everything- nuts, processed meats, salads from salad bars you name it I ate it but I sniffed everything first. I gave my kids peanut butter from 6 months (but I live down the road from a hospital and was hyper vigilant) and I never sterilised bottles or anything. I still let them eat food if they've dropped it at home. Not sure if that helps any. Oh and whilst breast feeding I ate chilli and anything I wanted. No allergies from either child.
