The pedi told me to wait until about 9 months for eggs. And he said to wait until after a year for honey. And he said to wait on nuts "because he could choke" like I was gonna give him peanuts? Lol. I'll probably wait on peanut butter though. But that was all he mentioned. I specifically asked which foods I should avoid and that was what he said.
None of us have any allergies except DH and Fiona's lactose intolerance. So we're pretty much dairy free because of that, but everything else I'm not really holding off on. He's already had eggs and strawberries. I haven't given him anything with peanuts in it yet, but that's just because it hasn't come up, not because I've been avoiding it. Honey we'll avoid until after 1 though, but that's not because of allergies. You should never give any baby honey before 1 year of age, because of the risk of infant botulism.
Raw honey isn't mostly an allergen, it's recommended to wait til at least a year due to the possibility of botulism. Cooked honey (at a very high temp, can't remember), or honey in products, is fine to feed to babies. I waited 'til a year for PB, and will most likely do the same with Peyton (although a paper I got from the ped said their rec is 18m, so it seems to vary for everyone). I can't remember what the average rec is for eggs, but we'll wait on those as well. We don't have allergies in the fam but I'd prefer to wait ' just in case'. My Grandma did have an allergic reaction to strawberries when she was a girl so I will wait on those as well.
I never even knew you were supposed to wait on honey. I never gave it to my daughter until recently and luckily weston hasnt had it either. He had strawberries last night for the first time. I will wait on peanuts and eggs tho.
Yeah Zack's had scrambled eggs and hard boiled egg white pieces. I read 8 months on eggs but I think it varies. We don't eat much honey to begin with so that wont be much of an issue. I read about strawberries with Hailey but I'll just give him pieces here and there.
