RPC's Infant Feeding Guide

The Roswell Pediatric Center "Infant Feeding Guide" is a collection of current guidelines of ways to safely introduce foods to your baby. Until recently, pediatricians advised parents to delay introducing the highly "allergenic foods", such as eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish, until at least a year of age. However, current scientific studies have shown that early introduction of allergenic foods may decrease an infant's risk of developing food allergies! These handouts reflect these new recommendations.
