Sure: You can start introducing berries from 6 months of age but be sure to only give one new food every three days. If you notice a rash, itchiness, or other symptoms it might be a sign of a food allergy. Strawberries should be cut up into small pieces so that there is less of a choking hazard.

Yes: Strawberry allergy is rare but strawberries do contain histamine, which is often mistaken for allergy symptoms. Regardless i think that at 9 months of age, she's a bit young to start eating raw strawberries.

Yes: According to the most recent american academy of pediatrics guidelines, it is safe to start introducing all foods to infants by 4-6 months of age. The best way is to introduce foods one-at-a-time just to see if they have any adverse reactions. If they do, see an allergist.
