  • I wouldn't give them earlier then 9-10 months. I've heard no whites until 12 months, but have also heard that it is fine to give them eggs without separating.

    look at this site for information on egg allergies. It looks like if there is a family history of allergy that you should wait 2 years. Although it also says in general one year for whites and 6 months for well-cooked yolks, unless family allergies.

  • I heard that u can give your baby hard boiled eggs around 6 months or so. Who knows if its true, asl long as is very well cooked.

  • I've given them to my kids as soon as they were taking other table foods alright.

  • Egg yolks are a great, early food for babies; they are loaded with good fats for babies developing brains. Egg whites are an allergy trigger food and should not be given to babies before they turn 1. This is not a complete list, but other allergy trigger foods are soy, dairy, wheat, citrus, strawberries, nuts.
