have you done egg in other forms? cake, pasta, noodles?

Scrambled is great for babies!

DS loved this from very early on smile He eats all kinds of eggs now.

my ds is allergic to egg.
paed told me to re-introduce in baked form (i.e. cake) as it is only a tiny amount, so is the 'safest'.
i'd try that and gradually build up.

scrambled is great, but i'd only give a small amount if it is the first time with egg. i know my fingers are burnt on this one, but i am sure some countries recommend egg yolk under 1, then yolk and white after 1 (white is more allergenic than the yolk).
i wish i hadn't introduced scrambled egg to my ds when he was 8 months ...sad

Shell001 is there a reason why you haven't introduced egg yet? Does he/you/your family have allergies?
If yes then I agree with likessleep. Otherwise, go for it! Try all sorts smile

Oh dear. Why can't you introduce scrambled under one?
I think the rules have all changed again since DS (3yrs) was a baby. I can't keep up!

I meant "oh dear, what happened with your 8 month ds when you gave him eggs?"

FruitynNutty Tue 04-Nov-08 14:13:37

Sorry, preg brain blush you've already said he is allergic, sorry sad

My understanding is that UK guidelines is that eggs are fine 6mths+, providing well cooked.
So we are all doing the 'right' thing. (and eggs are nutritious and convenient and full of iron)
But after my DS had his reaction and I did some research into it, I found out other countries recommend only egg yolk under 1. I thought as Shell hadn't introduced so far, there may be some family allergy?
But I am now paranoid towards the whole egg allergy thing.

Fruity - I still have preg brain and i am not even pregnant!

FruitynNutty Tue 04-Nov-08 14:23:28

Oh right! Ok, well I'll keep an eye out for possible new guidelines when weaning my next one then smile
Re preg brain, I'm not even sure it left me 3 yrs ago blush grin

He has eczema .. but i just was worried about it and never got round to introducing it .. but he has had egg pasta cake and muller rice which contains egg ... so you think whole egg scambled is fine now ?
