Baby Feeding: Allergenic Foods in Infants & Toddlers
It is recommended that parents hold off on giving solid foods to their babies until they are at least 6 months old, and that the allergenic foods listed below be introduced with caution.
For infants at higher risk of food allergy (for example, infants with eczema or a family history of allergy), the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend the following baby-feeding guidelines:
Exclusive breastfeeding or hypoallergenic formulas for the first 6 months.
No cow's milk until 12 months.
No egg until 24 months.
No peanuts, tree nuts, fish or seafood until at least 3 years.
