When do you recommend starting solids, and what’s your take on purées vs baby led weaning?

When do you suggest trying out high allergy foods (such as peanuts, eggs, etc)?

    @Andys I love this question! I am going to do a series of posts on introducing solids (and allergens) and BLW vs purees in the coming weeks! It is too much to address in this forum, but I will briefly say: every baby is different, and there is no single "right" answer here. The data does support early introduction of allergenic foods for infants at high risk for food allergies. I collaborated with several other experts on a BLW book and we have a specific guide on how to prepare the common allergens (book is called "101 before one" - my little one is 5.5 months old and I'll be chronicling some of our adventures with solids in the coming weeks using the recipe book!)
