There is a lot of conflicting info out there. And it changes so quickly! My DS is 3, and back when I was weaning him the rules were. Rice cereal at 4 mo, fruits/veggies at 6mo, and delay all allergenic foods until 1 year.

And I wouldn't be afraid to ask your ped about the conflicting information, your being pro-active about keeping up to date about the latest research...and so should they
