6 month old and ice cream?

I know babies aren't suppose to have milk/dairy... But would it harm them to have a couple bites of ice cream?

When did you first give your baby ice cream?

  • I have given my DD a tiny taste of my ice cream every now and then. I think the first time was when she was 7 months.

  • My son is 6 months old and when he sees his big sister eating an icecream she better give him a lick..he gets licks all the time. And, 6 month olds can have dairy. I feed my son yogurt. But, everyone has their own opinions. You do what you want.

  • I don't think a bite or two is a problem, but I didn't introduce my child to ice cream until 14 months and usually it is a sorbet or frozen yogurt.
