A study published in Pediatrics on November 18, 2013, supports the current American Academy of Pediatrics' allergy prevention recommendations to not introduce solids before 4 to 6 months of age.


The study found the delay of the introduction of solids until at least age 17 weeks was correlated with a reduced likelihood of allergies.  Infants who were introduced to foods at a younger age â‰Ī16 weeks had a higher incidence of allergy.


The study also confirmed that continued breastfeeding when cow's milk protein is introduced to infants' diets is correlated with a reduced likelihood of food allergies.
