  • Yolks, unless they are hard-boiled. You risk e-coli if they're like over-easy, due to the yolk being partially raw.

  • I had e-coli when I was 4. Hope it wasn't from eggs.

  • Or doctor said that eggs were okay after 9 months for most babies. He only recommends not giving them egg before a year if there is a family history of egg allergy.

  • I thought it was egg whites due to possible egg allergy, but hard boiled egg yolk was. Under cooked eggs are no no because of possible salmonella contamination.

  • I guess my baby was lucky. I fed her soft-boiled eggs now and then, maybe every month or so, from the time she started solid foods. We never had a problem.
