If you are considering egg, do just the yolks first. You can scramble, hard boil, or fry it just like you would for the whole egg. Also, if you're venturing out into new foods you could try baby yogurt (like Stoneyfield's which processes the milk proteins more than regular yogurt), cottage cheese, sausage, or bacon which are good proteins. Also, toast, english muffins, waffles, pancakes, or bagels. You can start trying new foods one at a time and watch for reactions. They won't have a reaction the first time a food is introduced, it takes more than one exposure. Keep Benadryl on hand and know that you can grow into an allergy. I am allergic to bananas and eggs and that didn't start until I was 17 and 21. Don't be afraid to try new foods, but do it one new food at a time. Good luck!

Both my boys ate table foods at 6 months of age, including boiled eggs. I mixed the boiled egg with mashed potatos. They loved it. My 2 year old still does. Nothing happened as far as allergies, and they got accostumed to eating everything that I fed them, never had to deal with them being picky eaters. If you are concerned about allergies, I woulld try feeding the child just a spoon full the first time and if nothing happens within 24 hours then your child is not allergic. Good luck!!

I have a 3yr old that is allergic to eggs. It runs in the family. The advice I was given was not to give him anything with egg in until about 10mths then try a hard boiled egg. This I did. He was fine with the hard boiled egg (he only had about 5 mouthfuls). A couple of weeks later he had some cake that had egg in it and had a massive allergic reaction.

My advice is if an allergy runs in the family consult your doctor before you do anything. If not I was told about 10mths is fine. Minda you this was 2yrs ago and the advice may have chanegd by now.

Give Ngala a call. They will be able to tell you the recommend ages to introduce new foods.

The first thing I ate was scrambled eggs (my Mum gave them to me in desperation because I wouldnt take anything else). Not only am I fine I actually really enjoyed them - still do :)

My daughter is a little over 2 1/2 and when she was under one I was told she could have egg yolks only until she turned one and then both yolk and whites, BUT recent information came out from the Pediatric Association that suggests feeding yolk and white before they turn one b/c food allergies are more likely if you hold off. This said, my response is to talk to your doctor to find our his/her recommendations. You might want to go in prepared with the latest information from the Association.

Quoting Tammy:

First of all, ROFL, I misread your question as "Can I feel my 9 months lil boy egg?" I thought, "Is this some new word for testicle??" LOL I quickly reread it and I now I can give you a rational answer! I would try the yolk first by itself then if that doesn't bother him, try the white. Egg whites are extremely allergenic and if a child is going to have allergies, it will probably be to that.


hahaha thats the funniest thing ive read in a while



 



to answer the OP yes you can after 6 months. my daughters dietitian often told us to make her scrambbled eggs for breakfast. good luck

That was the funniest thing I have read about misreading something. I think you are hilarious for actually writing it out what you thought,. KUDOS!

Definitely the yolk is okay no white of the egg per my pediatrician!

Hi, I found out my son was allergic to eggs at 10 months. He had been eating waffles and pancakes for about a month. It takes several exposures to find out if they have an allergy. It is usually the whites that cause the problem. I have been told by my son allergist that it is impossible to separate the two (yolk and white). My son has a lot of allergies. My feelings about it is to try it out. Try out a product that has egg in it first before straight egg. If allergies run in your family, you may want to wait. Just be prepared with Benadryl.

You can give him egg yolks but not whites till after a year. Many babies are sensitive to the egg white proteins. My daughter did not like boiled egg yolks but absolutely loved scrambled, don't add milk. It can be a finger food too! She has an egg everyday now. I stopped feeding baby cereal to my daughter one cause she refused spoon feeding and two cause rice cereal is constipating to her. We have scrambled egg, yogurt, fruit, and either wheat mini bagels or whole wheat waffles for breakfast. She's a year old. Good luck!

They say if they are allergic it has something to do with the whites but that is don't bother them if it's mixed with the yolk so scrambld eggs I give my baby I have since she was 8 1/2 months (even though they said not to :) I just gave her a little to see if she did ok then I gave her more she loves them and now she just turned 10 months and I wont lie I've given her things with just the whites in. They do get tired of the cereal... Hey I would too :P

My son who is 10 1/2 months loves cheese grits. I also mix fruit (stage 2 or 3) with cereal and it gets nice and thick for him. I also give him pancakes. I have not fed him eggs but my baby sitter has and he has not had a reaction. I started feeding him the fruit mixed with cereal at around 9 months... pancakes too. If he is teething, he might like a frozen waffle like eggos because it would feel good on his gums.
