Re: anyone not giving babies animal products? need advice
I thought you didn't introduce meat until 1 year of age (at least that's what I've read in a few books). Pediatrician told me that there are two different arguments on giving foods that lo can be allergic to. One argument is that the earlier you introduce the foods, the less likely they are to become allergic to them. The other argument is that you should wait until they are older before introducing potentially allergenic foods. He said that the research was pretty split so that you'd be wrong 50% of the time with which ever decision you made. Go figure. I haven't paid any attention to when you can introduce dairy because my lo is sensitive to dairy (I'm bf'ing and can't eat dairy or it makes him colicky).
