OMG Egg White

Without even thinking about it, I gave my almost 10 month old some egg white omelet!!! I can't believe I could be so stupid. DD was / is totally fine. Has anyone given their LO's egg white before 1 year? She's has had yolk plenty of times as well as whole egg in pancakes, muffins etc. However, the omelet was pure egg white.....dumb dumb dumb.

I actually started giving ds scrambled eggs (with whites) when he was 10mos. There are no known food allergies that run in our family, so I wasn't worried about it. Don't be too hard on yourself!

my pedi said that my 9 month old can eat everything except nuts and honey. She has had scrambled eggs many times and loves it!

I hate to sound dumb, because I should know this, but why not egg whites?

My son is almost 8 months and his ped said I could give him scrambled eggs as he's not shown any allergies to anything thus far. He also gets whole milk occasionally as well. I really think that your lo will be just fine! :o)

Both of my kids have had eggs before 1 year old.

CyndiG ~~ egg white is supposedly highly allergenic, and you are recommended to wait until babies are 1 year old before giving it to them.

Ethan had egg whites before 1 years old also. Im your LO is fine, considering there is no family history of food allergies.

Glad I am not the only rebel. No allergies in my family either so I gave Mason the whole egg as well at 10 months. He has always been fine with them. :)
