Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting

I know it's yahoo... piog

 but this is describing a medical journal that was published Nov 2012.

It's quite the opposite of everything I've learned thus far about allergies with my kids, though makes sense considering it's the same concept as taking allergy shots and such.

If you'd rather skip over the media article and go straight to the facts... here's what the yahoo article is talking about.

I wouldn't start any main allergy foods before my kid could talk. I need them to tell me if anything is wrong.

 If that's what you do, then great! I wasn't putting an emphasis towards any style of parenting. Just found the article interesting! :-)

 I got a little confused by the yahoo article at first. I had to reread it again and again slowly. haha That's why I posted the JACI article with it. :-) I started slowly introducing my dd to nuts when she was a year. Now at 15 months I am comfortable with giving her peanut butter.

She can't talk, but I just keep an eye on her when trying new things. Same goes for any new food!

Also, as I said to the other poster, this wasn't meant to be me pushing anything on other parents. If you wait, great! If not, that's good too. :-)

I don't think anyone would delay/start a food with the HOPES of being detrimental, ykwim?

They were talking about this on the radio today. They were making it sound like there'd be less food allergies these days if people started common allergy foods at 5 or 6 months.

Science annoys me. Look at how adults of this generation were fed as babies. I bet avoiding high allergen foods is just one of many differences. Perhaps they should also look at formula use, chemical exposure, air pollutants, quality/nutrition of foods, etc. those could have just as much of an effect on allergens, if not more so, than delaying allergen foods. I hate it how science prematurely points fingers. It seems you can find a study to prove just about anything.

I wouldn't introduce any major allergens early ever.
