Whilst medical professionals sometimes recommend waiting until at least 12 months before introducing other berries (strawberries in particular), blueberries are not as likely to cause allergic reactions and many pediatricians will suggest offering them to your baby at some point...
Please remember, though, that a risk of allergy to blueberries DOES still exist - and you should watch your baby carefully once you have introduced them. Signs of an allergy to blueberries include

congestion
wheezing
coughing
fatigue
itchy/swollen eyes
swollen lips
itchy rash
