Should I Be Concerned About My Son's Solid Food Intake

Hello, I am a first time mom to an almost 1 year old boy. He is still having some issues with solid foods.

I am feeling a little overwhelmed and wondered if any of you are going through the same thing and if you have any advice. I should be starting my son on solid foods, but even the Gerber baby foods terrify me because I don't want him to have a reaction. The allergist thinks he will grow out of the milk and egg allergy, but that shouldn't be until he is at least two or three. What...
