The time to start weaning a child is an object of controversy.
The reason for this is the significant debate and contradictory information released to the public.

Currently, the advised ages are between 4 and 6 months, depending on individual circumstances.
If a child has passed the 4-6 months and no allergens have been introduced, you should do it at once and do not delay it further.
They should only be seen by an allergist if there is a history of reactions to a particular food. In this case, they should be tested and eventually guided by an allergy dietitian.
For the same reason, there is no need for a child to be seen by a dietitian before weaning.
