I can't remember and have found differing opinions. Ds is 9 months. Thanks

I would wait until 12 months I didn't as I was desparate as my DD hardly ate any food at 7.5months and tried it then. She came out in hives and we are now having lots of allergy investigations. 1 in 50 children are allergic to egg but most grow out of it. I would wait.

Def wait until at least 12 months. DD2 has an egg allergy and we don't have any allergies in our family. I gave her egg at 8 months and it was obviously too early.

Many countries advise waiting until 12 months, no idea why UK guidelines don't.
