Different foods

So they say to wait afew days between introducing new foods. I've been doing that and haven't had any negative reactions. My daughter is almost 7months and has had lots of different foods, and she loves it all :)
So anyway my question is, when can I stop doing this? I mean there are sooo many different foods, I'm still trying new foods to this day. Do I just always need to keep a mental note of what foods she has had and hasn't had?

  • I also stopped with the delayed introductions when we hit real table food. I will however be careful when I try him on highly allergenic foods like nuts and eggs.

  • When my daughter first went on baby foods, the doctors said to wait 2-3 days in between foods in case she had a reaction they would know what food she got the reaction too. I was waiting about 4 days in the beginning with my daughter then I cut it down to 2 days.

  • My oldest if 5 and I still do it. But then, we're at the stage where we're introducing seafood and other higher allergic foods. It's not so much that I give a single food for 3-4 days straight, but I only introduce ONE new food at a time.

    My 3 year old is allergic to citrus fruits, so I may be more cautious than some others though.....

  • We stopped when my son was on almost all table foods at around 10 or 11 months... but with any high allergy food we still do it... like when he was given strawberries and oranges at 12 months.
    We still haven't done peanuts or kiwi
