  • I personally wouldn't do it. She could get really sick.

  • Here is what the FDA has to say about it...

  • I would say no. Honey is the same way...I think the appropriate age is 18 months.

  • I don't think is should matter. With honey they say after 1 year and we tried that last week with my 14 mo. old she is fine. Just try a little bit and see how it goes, or call the phone nurse. How is apple cider different from eating apples?
