  • honey is definitely unsafe for children under 12 months, i read it on the jar i have here. my pediatrician once told me only to give my daughter the egg whites until she was a year old too, although i've heard of some mothers giving their kids the whole egg and nothing happening.

  • if you give her hotdogs for any reason make sure to cut it in half long ways first. and then cut it into pieces. ...if you dont cut it long way first those cute little round pieces are the perfect size to block her breating.

  • It's true about the honey until after the age of 2. Basicly you don't want to give a baby anything that is a choking dog chunks, grapes, peanuts, popcorn and raw carrots. Peanut butter shouldn't be until after a year old, and the same with eggs and shrimp. Watch for any allergic reations such as rash, and gastrointestinal upset. Rarely kids can have a reaction that is severe and causes the throat to swell keep a close eye with any new foods.

  • No stringy type on pizza or moz sticks...thats really bad for children under the age of 2 or even 3. Choking hazard

  • Just FYI. Cow's milk is not unsafe...just not recommended in kids under 1 because they need their nutrition from formula or breastmilk. I've read that strawberries are best kept until after 1 yo but other berries are ok. Also, anything they could potentially bite/gum off a big piece of which could then get caught in their windpipe.

  • no dairy , or strawberries until after the age of one - due to digestive reasons
    no honey until after age 2 - due to botulism risk

  • Honey can cause botulism. So, it's a bit no-no.

    You should stay away from high allergens foods: milk, strawberries, eggs, peanuts

  • I didn't limit any of my kids food. I don't think I gave honey. But every thing I did. My boys were given whole milk mixed with their formula. And my dd was on whole milk at 10 months. My dd weaned of the breast at 10 months and it was either formula or whole milk. I chose milk because she was not getting a drop of formula.
