    At the time I remember looking at the information and being interested, but when I read more I knew I had no intention of introducing any foods as early as 3 months so decided it was not for me in case I was assigned to that group :flower:

    It looks interesting to me but with my kids having allergies that stem often right from birth, it would be too risky xx

    I personally wouldn't want to risk introducing foods like yoghurts from 3 months (which the study requires for 50% of participants). My LO is 3 months old now and the thought of feeding him yoghurt is unfathomable -he's still so tiny!

    I looked into it to, the only reason i didnt take part in it with lo is because of the blood tests - if it the one am thinking, they did them at 3month, 1yr and 3yrs old.
    I didnt like that idea or think it's nice for her in my personal opinion!
    I thought it was a interesting study and would of taken part if it hadn't of involved blood tests!

    Thanks for the replys, im still in 2 minds what to do i think it will be an intresting study , however i do have concerns over introducing food early/and her needed blood tests. But then i think we will never know the best time for introducing foods if studies are never done and there will always be speculation. The other thing is that they do sensidisation testing on all the food groups to see if the baby reacts , if so you have a pre warning if there maybe posible allergic reactions, and are asked on the first introduction to to so at the hospital where the research takes place. As im said im still unsure, but am very greatful for all your comments/opinons and look forward to hearing some more thanks :flower:

    We were asked too. I was really interested in doing it, my eldest has severe fish allergy my other 2 are fine all were weaned @ 4 months as per guidelines @ the time (well eldest 2 anyway).

    I would have done it but getting to London was too much of a pain plus the blood tests put me off too. If it could have been done more locally I would probably have done it.
