  • I think that if there is no history of allergies to shellfish in your family, it should be fine at this age. Just give him one, and then if a few days go by without incident, you can probably feel safe about giving it again.

    If there IS a history, you should wait.

  • Clams are in a shell and are therefore a shellfish
