    Default When did you start feeding your child eggs?

    DS has been doing awesome trying solid foods. He loves them.

    I'd like to try scrambled eggs. I remember hearing something about when you can give them eggs though, something about only egg yolks or only egg whites...i can't remember.

    When did you first give them eggs and did they have any problems?

    He's had no sign of any food sensitivities.

    I think the 'Health Unit textbook' advice is no whites before 1 yo, yolks can be after 6 months. I gave both DDs scrambled yolks, and hard boiled yolks after 6 months. Started with whites in food that had a small amount of egg white per serving (ie. muffins) at about 10 months for DD2.

    The public health nurse said whole eggs are ok after 6mths now..I guess that has changed because the egg allergy issues hasn't been proven?? That's what they told me...I still haven't given them though.

    we have no history of allergies and no signs of allergies and when we did eggs we were in urgent care the very first time.
    so as long as you know the signs for an allergic reaction and you have an accessable car or resource for transporting to the hospital if needed then go for it.

    DS LOVES scrambled eggs and we've been giving them to him since he was 10 months, the whole egg.

    We did scrambled eggs with DD3 around 8 or 9 months. No problems with them.

    I figured by the time I wanted to introduce eggs, he had had them in other foods so it wasn't a sensitivity I was thinking of but more like salmonella or whatever it is you can get from undercooked eggs. So I didn't do like, sunny side up or something, but I'd do hardboiled or scrambled by ten months to a year.
    Not that dd ever touched them. DS did though.
