When Can Babies Eat Egg?

As suggested by doctors, you can introduce egg yolks to your baby when she/he is 6 months old. Some think that egg is allergic and if they introduce eggs in the early stage, then it might cause allergic reactions. However, according to the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), even if you delay introducing allergic food to your babies, you cannot prevent atopic diseases.

When it comes to the egg white, you will have to wait until your baby becomes one year old, suggested by pediatricians. The reason is that egg white is difficult to digest. If your family has an egg allergy history, then it is better to wait until one year. Also, only start with a mouthful or two and do not introduce any other new food at the same. Allow the digestive system to be familiar with the new food and then you can increase the quantity.
