    we started giving toast around 6 months. I've heard it's best to use white bread and we've put a little butter on Hannah's before. You can also spread some apple sauce or other fruit puree on it (Hannah really likes that)

    The info I've got says to wait at least 8 months before introducing wheat, as it's a common allergen.

    I have given Rebecca a few bits of toast with bannana puree spread on it for about a week now and she has only started to eat small bits in the last couple of days.
    Not sure about the allergy thing though??

    Oh how funny.

    Tried Gabbi with some toast today, you would have thought I'd put a spider or something on her table!!!!! She's teething a bit at the mo so I thought toast might be good. Now this is the baby who grabs everything and puts it in her mouth, everything so why oh why is she scared of toast? Funny. I put it on her table and she lifted her arm up at the side of her head, and wouldn't take her eyes off the toast! She then would touch with one finger and pull away again. She would then watch her other hand and fingers, turning her hand and moving her fingers and every now and then she would look from the corner of her eyes to see if the toast was still there. She then would pick it up and put it down, and moan with arms away from the toast with a scared look on her face.

    So I ate the toast :rofl:

    we've had half a slice of taost just white bread with marg on. she's had brown bread aswell actually. My LO just sucks the life out of it! It gets a bit messy though, mushy lumps of bread get everywhere.

    I'd never heard the 8 months thing due to allergies? I thought it was just peanuts and honey they couldn't have now?
