  • the reason its said to wait it bc the allergy usually lies in the white of the egg. So a lot of ppl will give baby the yolk cooked. I didnt wait either, just gave DS a lil scrambled egg to try. There were no signs of allergic reactions so he eats eggs and now is 8 1/2 months old.

  • Has he had pasta? Already ate egg.

    Has he had bread? Already ate egg.
