Ds who is 4 it was introducing certain foods after so many months. I think eggs were 10mths, peanuts over 12 months ect.
Dd19mths they changed the guidelines around the time she was born. To do not delay any food with the exception of honey.

A variety of ALL foods after 6 months ( including eggs and peanuts ) is recommended except honey as pp have mentioned
Introducing a variety of solid foods around the age of 6 months is consistent with reducing the risk of developing allergic syndromes. There is no evidence that delaying the introduction of solid foods beyond this age reduces the risk of atopic disease. Delay in the introduction of solid foods until after the age of 6 months is associated with increased risk of developing allergic syndromes.

Send your friend the nhmrc guidelines in the previous post and tell her she should give a copy to her child health nurse who has given her outdated recommendations.

I was also told not to delay allergens. I hate being made to feel like my kids allergies are my fault. My kids showed food intolerances from 1 - 2 weeks old from exposure to the allergen food in my breast milk - so I KNOW that they were born with them, it's not something that can be avoided. I have been told that I must have eaten too much processed food when pregnant, or even as a kid, I exposed my unborn babies to too many cleaning products, etc... wtf? What makes people feel like they have the right to blame a mother for their child's allergies!

Ugh, that's awful! Firstly, we don't even KNOW what causes allergies. There are possible links with genetics, cleanliness, bacteria, vitamin D, mother's diet, introduction of foods, certain environmental chemicals whilst pregnant, air quality....
We don't actually KNOW what's happening yet, let alone have the ability to say "do this and you'll reduce risks" and CERTAINLY not "you did this and therefore...!!".
So sorry people feel that it's acceptable to do that!
