I was wondering if there was any harm in giving Ds whole eggs, I know he's not supposed to eat them until he's 12 months, as long as it's baked in to a recipe? I have a bunch for cookies, pancakes, muffins ect. using his cereal but most of them contain an egg or two. I tried one that didn't have eggs for cookies and they weren't very good. Hard as rocks! I'm thinking the lack of egg had something to do with that. I imagine most of the store bought things he has like bread, bagels ect. have eggs in them to a certain extent so I don't know if it would hurt. Does anyone know what the rule is on eggs baked into things? Would the amount of egg in most recipes be small enough it wouldn't hurt him? There is no history of egg allergies in our family. Oh and he's 7 months.
I've been giving DD (7 months) pancakes made from homemade. They have both egg and milk. I told Ped I was letting her eat these & he didn't seem concerned. As long as she's not experiencing stomach problems or allergies, then I can go ahead. Just everything (especially new foods) in moderation, with breastmilk as #1 food source, everything else is still secondary.
I also give DD oranges to suck on occasionally too (not supposed to give citrus until 12 mo), and Ped also said the same thing. As long as she wasn't having it every day and she was not having stomach problems.
