I've started my son on green beans recently and i have no idea how long i should feed them to him before i can see if he has a food allergy or not. A week? 4 days?

I agree with Bethany, I introduced new stuff about every 3-4 days, we started when she was 6 months. Good luck!

The current recommendation is to wait four days, and to introduce new foods earlier in the day so that you can call your pediatrician if you have any questions about a reaction.



I usually waited two days for most foods, and up to a week for common allergens like peanut butter. But my daughter was 10 1/2 months when we started solids, so if yours is a lot younger I'd wait the four days. :)
