  • ? not sure most babies this age are still on baby food/ bottle.. does he have teeth to eat solid foods? I have a seven month old who would choke on paste he has no teeth.. most solid foods are started closer to one year, but if he is eating paste with no issues.. if wheat is not an allergy trigger then , sure why not.. unsure if it is an allergy trigger.

  • My son was eating whole wheat pasta by this age. If he's eating pasta anyway, you know it's not an allergy issue, and whole wheat is much better for him.

  • personally wouldn't at that age - stick with the fruits and vegetables.

    wheat and other ingredients of that variety can bung up a baby's tummy pretty good.

  • Wheat is an allergy trigger food and should not be given to a child under age one. You can give him pasta made from rice or corn.
