Is it ok to give my baby eggs!? Doc says more table food and more protein! But she chokes on meat and chicken....so I figured eggs is a good source of protein! I gave a taste and she liked them! Is this ok?

  • Yes allergies is a danger that's why its recommended to do it lets put all the answers together and say to it between 9-15 months
    Or you can ask your own doctor and see what he/she says

  • Peds USED to say no eggs until later due to concern over allergies, but now the AAP recently came out and said there is no reason to delay the introduction of any foods. You can google it or ask your ped. My son loved them (and still does!)
