I have always been told that early solids cause allergies. I have found many many articles saying that the longer you wait the better off for the baby not developing allergies to that food.
Even as far as some breastfeeding moms with strong family history of allergies being advised to not introduce solids until one year old to prevent allergies.
Now I keep seeing here and there a mom saying you should start solids at 4 months to prevent allergies, saying there is 'research' proving that early introduction to wheat or other foods prevent allergies.
And that delaying solids causes allergies.
*******PLEASE keep personal experiences out of this, I'm looking for some articles, facts, recommendations, some solid evidence of the truth.*********
