So, for you, what was the diff. in giving them to her at 6m vs. 15m? Stronger immune system? Less chance of a reaction?
We don't have any food allergies in our families, so I'm pretty clueless here. (I didn't really know eggs were an allergen until recently) I'd like to ACT as if DD's at risk for allergies and act accordingly just to be safe, but am unsure as to how the timeline works for these cases.
