Mixed food allergy messages

Short note here folks-- there's been research about not starting your child on solid foods to avoid allergies and research that states one should give allergenic foods around 6 months to prevent allergies. Conflicting information and not easy to decide. Get your doctor's personalized ideas.
For me-- and many out there-- it's well beyond 6 months and we've waited or not and we'll have to live with whatever the research literature decides. It would be great for younger families to get some consensus since managing food allergies is stressful on all.
At least there's research happening on many fronts!
