  • I fed both my kids eggs before that age... its one of the things u should watch due to alleric reactions.. go ahead and feed the baby some eggs and just watch for signs of reactions im sure ur baby will be ok...

  • i've been giving my 10 month old scrambled eggs with salt, pepper, and ketchup (i also mix in whole milk before cooking) since she was 8 months. in fact that's what she's having for dinner tonight. she has them almost every day. she tried deviled eggs for the first time on monday and could not get enough of them

  • It really depends on the mother, and if the mother is ready to feed their child that kind of food. My twins are nine months and I won't give them dairy products. I give them eggs on very rare occasions. If you feel that your child is ready, then yes you can.

  • They're saying that it's safe at that age, but it's really up to your judgment. I wouldn't give salt, though, as it can be addictive. It's still your choice though.

  • It's fine at that age. They used to recommend you delay introducing eggs due to allergies, but they have found that doesn't help at all, so the AAP within the last year lifted that recommendation.
