Wondering how many other people have used this as a reference when introducing solids.
For me, it has been the ONLY book (about solids) that I've followed. Up until Judan's PA rxn I swore by it and have to say that in a lot of ways I still find it extremely valuable EXCEPT...
She recommends a lot of the highly allergenic foods way too early!!! And she contradicts herself; for example, way in the beginning of the book she says that most pediatricians recommend that you wait 3 years before starting peanuts BUT THEN when you start the month by month guide she has peanut butter at 10 MONTHS!!
I read the first few chapters when he was 5 months old and never went back to them. I did wait until he was a year before peanut butter but I'm still pretty pissed about that.
Of course it's my fault for not doing more research or asking my Ped. but the Dr. NEVER gave us any restrictions on Judan's diet because there are no known allergies in our family.

Interestingly enough I used this book ALOT with my first son who has NKA. By the time my next son came along I really didnt use it as much. He was so much pickier about food, really not hardly eating solids till he was 10 months or so. I encouraged them of course but really kind of backed off feeling he was doing what his body needed because he was still gaining weight and besides ear infections was healthy. Even with my first son however I didnt introduce everything she suggested as early as she did. I didnt give him peanut butter till he was two and I remember asking his Dr. about some of the seeds and nuts and still didnt give them to him. I liked the book very much over all and would have used it more but by the time Ben came along I had a 15 month old and had no time for looking at books [img][/img]

I used the guidelines in "Children's Hospital Guide to Your Child's Health and Development" - great book for children's development as well as medical issues. It's consistent with what my pediatrician and pediatric allergist suggest for introduction of foods. Used this for my PA son.
