  • I would ask your pediatrician. Personally, I'd be afraid to because of a choking hazard and also because I'd be afraid of an allergic reaction.

  • I don't think babies are allowed nuts until after the first year. That sounds like a severe choking hazards, no matter how long you soak them.

  • Nuts are fine. Just not peanuts. As long as they are non chokeable size :)

  • Nuts are a choking hazard and I'm not sure they'd soften up enough even soaked in water...

  • I'd wait until your baby was over a year

  • You can but I wouldn't. There is no reason to feed a baby soaked almonds.

  • As long as baby has teeth and you make sure to chop them into smaller pieces I don't see why not :)
