Im pretty sure if we always listened to the 'studies', we would never be able to feed our children anything, or even let them outside. Im surprised we arent advise about taking children out in cars because of the risk of an accident happening. The reason children get so many allergies these days is because we are advised againsts cutting out so many things before 12 months of age. I have 4 perfectly healthy children and they have all eaten honey from a young age ie 6 months. I suppose you use your own judgement.
My baby has honey on his dummy. He is 9 weeks old. It helps settle him sometimes and IT WORKS. He is happy, so I am happy. I think we are so caught up about what the internet or some book says. Don't be afraid to trust your own judgement. We all made it to adulthood. Goodness knows what our parents tried when we were babies, but we are all healthy and living and weren't brought up via a text book.
Whatever works for you, go for it!
