The 4 day wait rule and “Forbidden” foods in the first year

The 4-day wait rule
One of the most important things to take note of when feeding baby semisolids is the four-day wait rule.

This means that you introduce only 1 new food at a time in small amounts for four days. If your baby has an allergic reaction, you’d know at once what the culprit is. Symptoms typically occur within 24 hours though.

You can start combining foods once baby has consumed those foods without problem.

“Forbidden” foods
Here is a list of “forbidden” foods for the first year. The list is not exhaustive 🙂

Egg white
Citrus foods
Whole grapes (choking hazard)
Cow’s milk (as a drink) – unless given the go-ahead by the doctor
