Can I feed Hunter eggs?

Discussion in 'Ages 0-2' started by eyesoftheworld, Jan 12, 2010.

  1. I haven't given hunter eggs yet, because I know that the are up high on the allergy list. The only reaction he has shown was to milk, this far. So we do avoid milk. But I would really like to feed him eggs, it would be an easy way to get protein in him. So mama's tell me if I can give him eggs. As a new mama I'm overly cautious about stuff. :)

    I've given my baby tiny bits of egg off my plate. I'd give him just a little and make sure he has no reaction. Also, I've read that egg *whites* are the part that can cause problems, so try just a bit of egg yolk maybe.

    I give yolk starting about 7-8 months (whenever they are chewing well) and then whole eggs at 1 yr...but we don't have any food allergies in our family.
  5. We don't have any food allergies in our family either. So i'm gonna give it a try.

    Yes, eggs are fine at this age. Emma loves eggs! I gave yolks when she was 9/10 mos old, then whole eggs sometime after a year. Easy lunch! :)

    ditto.

    I'd start with the yolk since he has a hx of food allergy. Then move on to the whites.
