Is anyone else not introducing milk and eggs to their child's diet until after they are a year old? People look at me strange when I tell them I prefer my son not have foods containing these things.

I think my son is allergic! I have given him formula and he suddenly has eczema that I can calm down.. and when I drink milk (I breastfeed) he is sooo cranky...

I gave my children eggs and milk at the age of 1. Their pediatrician said it was fine.

I followed my pediatrician's advice and introduced my son to eggs and whole milk after he turned one year old. You're suppose to wait because of the risk of allergies so you are doing the right thing. I guess not everyone understands that. I fed him the yolk only for a while. That's where all the nutritients are and the pediatrician said they are more likely to be allergic to the egg whites.

I waited until both my kids were 1 to introduce both. you know where acually told to do so, so we are not doing anything wrong.
