Quote:
“Introducing solid foods alongside breastfeeding can benefit the immune system. It appears the immune system is educated when there is an overlap of solids and breast milk because the milk promotes tolerogenic mechanisms against the solids.

“Additionally, our findings suggest 17 weeks is a crucial time point, with solid food introduction before this time appearing to promote allergic disease whereas solid food introduction after that time point seems to promote tolerance.”
