  • I actually recently read a report somewhere that eggs were fine as soon as they were able to eat the stage 3 baby food. The report also said that you could give them the entire egg unless your family has a high history of egg allegeries. I would check with your doc just to be sure.

  • I think eggs and meats are not suppose to be started until around 9 months. Then it's suppose to be egg yolks only, because whites are common allergens. (I think, please don't quote me lol)

  • I would say closer to 9 months, and at that point, only the yolks until they are 1 yr old.

  • well the doctor told me he could eat meats already because he is on a 9-mo level for like sitting, crawling, and basic development, i guess...

  • Eggs are supposed to be around 1 yr. HOWEVER my son was eating them around 5-6 months. Its just for allergies in the yolk it could cause. Just watch for allergic reactions Id say. But if your worried about it just wait. :)

  • My dr. recommended waiting on eggs until 9-12 months but my little guy was eating them at 8 months and had no problems. And he didn't eat a ton just bites here and there.

  • When my first was a baby I read and was told to wait at least 1 year before giving eggs, peanut butter, honey & strawberries. It could have change I suppose. See what your doc says. (=

  • It's usually around a year... BUT I just read that there is no link to starting high allergen foods earlier than a year and it causing an allergy. A child has an allergy or they don't no matter the age. My son is 8 months and he will most likey start eggs at 9 months.
