In brief: 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.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics current guidelines, it is safe for children as young as 6-months of age to ingest ANY food. Reactions can occur to anything but there is no scientific data to support avoiding ANY foods to feed children. Just go to the AAP website to read more.

In brief: 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. More information can be found here: http://www.Babycenter.Com/408_when-can-my-baby-eat-berries_1368508.Bc.

In brief: 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.
