  • Sweetie I believe that its all up to you as the mommy. My son and daughter started trying real food tiny bits at first at like 4 months just little tastes here and there. If you feel comfortable giving her some then go ahead, oh and for future just because I know this for a fact... chocolate is a laxative a small piece if baby is having issues can help easy things plus they think is yummy :)

  • My son was 2 years his first time, and my youngest hasn't had any yet.

  • I have never thought of chocolate as being a laxative, but rather it causes constipation. Looking online I read that it can do both depending on your body. For this reason alone it might be better to wait to introduce it.

  • My son is 9 1/2 months and I've let him taste little tidbits of things I'm eating depending on what it is. He has had one tiny bite of chocolate and he's fine.

  • I don't see any reason why not. It's not like you plan on giving her a huge slice of cake, is it?

  • I didn't introduce candy and sweets to my kids until much, much later. To them fruit is very sweet and they don't know that they are missing anything by not having chocolate. I guess I just don't see the point in giving them any?!?

  • My son is 7 months and there is no way i would give him chocolate at this point. Just my opinion though
