  • I waited until my son was a year old, I think, before he tried fish. We don't have any allergies in our family but I didn't want to take the risk.

  • Probably not...wait till your lo is a year old just to prevent any food allergies this early.

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics says its perfectly safe after 6 months as long as there is no family allergy to said item :)

  • The information always changes, but I was told to not feed my baby fish, eggs, honey, cow's milk, citrus, or shellfish in any form until he was at least 1, preferably 2, years old.
