You can introduce allergenic foods such as milk and eggs to babies -- even those at risk for allergies -- when they're as young as 4 to 6 months, according to recent guidelines from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. While the American Academy of Pediatrics has been recommending this practice since 2008, many parents and pediatricians are still following older guidelines that advised waiting to introduce these foods, according to NBC News.

Have you thought about when you will introduce baby food to baby? What foods will you introduce first?

Interesting.  I'm planning to hold off until baby is 6 months old.  Not sure what we'll start with but I'm leaning towards avocado.
