I know this question has been asked many times before but I cant find the answer. At what age can you start a baby on eggs? I know at a year they can have the whole thing but what part can they have before a year? yolk? or white?

  • Most people tell you the yolk is safe from around 6 months. As your pediatrician, mine okayed the whole egg at 8 months. I did some reading on my own as well and found that recent research says that delaying the introduction of egg does not decrease allergies. So my son had the whole egg at 8 months - and loves just about anything with eggs (scrambled, french toast, quiche, etc.).
    If there is a family history of egg allergies, you should avoid them altogether for the first year.

  • I started feeding my kids scrambled eggs around 9-10 months.
