  • I wouldn't give my Son anything at that age unless totally necessary. Better safe than sorry. That's My opinion.

  • I would only after you have researched and ask all the right question.

  • No, its not bad at all. My kids pediatrician recommends it, but I do not know the dosing.

  • I wouldnt. Talk to your pedi and see what he/she says but I really dont see the need to add extra stuff to a 6 month old's diet.

  • I'd say no, but ask your doctor. What are the benefits of it? Why are you wanting to give it to your baby? Curious....

  • I've never heard of giving a baby flax seed. I personally wouldn't recommend you do since babies don't have teeth at that age. And I think you should discuss it with your pediatrician on the next office visit for your baby.

  • You should ask your doctor first.
