Re: any EBF mommas NOT wait?
With my oldest he started cereal/baby food around four months and is perfectly healthy. However he weaned very soon after he started foods. With my second he started foods at four months and now has a gluten allergy, peanut/tree nut allergy and some medication allergies. The medications are definitely hereditary, however the gluten and nut allergies do not run in either my family or my husband's. So we are not really sure if the early introduction to foods had a hand in his allergies. With our third I am not introducing anything until at least six months and even then I am not going to use jarred food or the gerber cereal. I am going to be making my own food and only giving him oatmeal or rice ground down from the whole form that we already buy. That way I know it is not contaminated.
