I have a 3.5 year old and an 8 month old. With my older child I was fairly orthodox in terms of following conventional wisdom/recommendations on when to introduce allergens. With this second baby, it's all been out the window! I've already fed her eggs (including the white, previously warned against), coconut milk and coconut oil, foods cooked with shellfish (though not the shellfish themselves), fish, and even citrus in the form of a clementine (which is sometimes recommended to wait until one year). I have noticed that when my paleo baby gets a higher fat higher protein dinner, she tends to sleep longer and more soundly at night.
All this to say - are allergen concerns on solids introduction blown out of proportion? When did you introduce certain allergens - what allergen foods were they and at what age?
Examples of potentially allergenic paleo foods: Citrus, nuts, eggs, dairy, poultry, etc.
Can I feed my baby almond butter or macadamia-crusted foods yet? ;-p Or for that matter, foods dressed with macadamia, walnut, or almond oils?
