Can I feed homemade yoghurt to my 7-month old?

Is it safe? I'm going to sample it first to make sure I've done it right (it's the first batch I'll have made) but I'd like to know whether other mums have fed it to their littlies without any bother.

I'll be making it with whole milk, of course. I'm going to use sterilised jars to store it in, too.

Brilliant - I just thought I'd double-check that his digestive system could cope with something made in a domestic environment. Thanks for this.

Has he had yoghurt before? Some babies might get a bit of an upset tummy from yoghurt - but it'll be a dairy thing as they might not be used to it (in case you think it's your yoghurt!)

Yes, he's had it before, and loves it. The shop only had Rachel's coconut bio-live today, and it's got sugar in it (just a wee bit, but still...) so I decided to use it as a starter to make my own yoghurt for the little chap.
