  • No, I don't see the point. My 3 year old has had some though.

  • yes, why not? YOu can pretty much give a baby any kind of foods you want as long as you know they can chew it and wont choke on it.

    Thats silly. I always give my baby his own when we go out or have some. In the summer he has it 2 or 3 times a week

  • i wouldn't give my baby ice cream because is just introducing unhealthy foods.

    ice cream also has egg and milk, which are common allergies for children, and not to be introduced before 1yrs old

  • Nope. Especially not until after a year old.

  • I wouldn't because of the egg and milk. You aren't supposed to give these until one year. My 10 month old had a severe allergic reaction to some baby food that had eggs in it.

  • hell no. what's the point in that? it may not kill them, but it certainly isn't good for them. egg, dairy, sweeteners, etc. can you say tummy aches & cavities? junk food is bad for people in general. a baby has no business eating it.

  • Hell no. My son is only 6 months old. Its not until a baby is a year is when you can give them dairy.

  • I allowed my daughter to have a lick here or there of ice cream when she was nearing a year old. Since then, the same has held true. No more than a few nibbles...I don't just give her a dish and let her go at it.
