When did you first give your baby chocolate? I am not giving my baby any sweets besides fruits right now and he is 10 months. But a friend lets her 5 month suck on chocolate (choking hazard) and gives her icecream with choclate (poor tummy!)

  • I am not sure when we first did, but he wouldn't eat it until he was 5. I think your friend is asking for trouble with one so little. Not just because it's chocolate but because of the tings you mentioned.

  • Kids r not supposed to have anything smaller then thier fists in thier mouths. Your friend is asking for tragedy giving her child chocolate. They can have chocolate starting at five years old,not younger.

  • I don't remember exactly, but my son had a chocolate bday cake at his first birthday and I don't remember that being the first time he had any sweets. I thnki it's ok for kids to have some sweets as long as they have a helathy balance of everything else.

  • like some of the other mommies said here. i didnt allow my kids to have chocolate until they were a year old. usually they get a chocolate cupcake on their birthday. but they very rarely get it, only on special occasions and such.

  • Oh gosh...I don't remember exactly how old my kids were but I know they weren't under a year old...DS and on of my DDs couldn't handle chocolate even at 2 years - 2 M&Ms would make them spit up.
