LOL! I'm no big fan either. [i]Hate the attitude.[/i] Honestly? And no advice, absolutely not, but I'd probably be popping a bottle in my adorable girl's pie hole right now if she wasn't so.......[i]adorable[/i] when she nurses. Polite, coy, full of smiles. I'm not good at refusing my children. The boys? They were equally as content with the bottle. And I can't see that I went "wrong" there either. But maybe I just lucked out. Maybe it's just me. No advice. (don't want the LLL police to find me.....)
I mean, sure, it would be nice to have breastfed my boys longer than I did, but what "works" for some isn't necessarily what "works" for others. And there is no way __ ____ I'm going to point fingers at *anyone* who manages to raise their children with love and concern merely because they choose (for whatever reasons, any reasons) not to breastfeed. [i]No way[/i].

My PA DD absolutely refused to BF. She would fight me. I had to feed her something. So, she got the bottle, but I don't think that is why she is PA.
As far as solid food goes, she wasn't interested until around 71/2 months. So, I did wrong by giving her a bottle (according to the article) but did right by delaying solid foods. So, too much formula led to her allergy? Maybe.

I breastfed both kids exclusively until 6 months and introduced things slowly etc etc, and my son is still EA/PA/TNA. Go figure.
On a side note: I have two friends who were unable to breastfeed- they didn't produce enough milk and the babies were failing to thrive. Several times they were scolded in public by strangers for giving their babies bottles.

List of food allergy "experts"...

Experts Available to Discuss Food Allergies and Infants
--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ExpertSource:
TOPIC: Researchers recommend infants receive only breast milk until the child is six months old to prevent food allergies, according to an article by Reuters Health. While there are no specific guidelines to determine when children should begin eating solid foods, allergists say children who receive solid foods within the first four months of life have an increased risk of developing food allergies. The allergists also advise parents to wait until a child is at least 3 years old before allowing them to eat peanuts, cashews, fish and seafood. The report appears in the July issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
