When can babies eat eggs?

I have read so many conflicting articles.

    We did scrambled eggs around 7 or 8 months. I just cooked them a little longer. I think it’s whatever you are comfortable with.

    We also started around 7 or 8 months and had no issues.

    Same here, about 8 months. My son loves scrambled eggs. Eggs are a known allergen, so you just have to be aware if baby starts showing any signs of having a reaction, you’ll need to contact your pediatrician. But otherwise, it’s a great early finger food!

    As mentioned it can be an allergen. You are suppose to give the yolk first and then the white. The white part is what causes most allergies.

    We also gave it to our daughter at 7-8 months and have had no issues.

    The new recommendations are that as soon as baby starts solids you can introduce egg. And it can be both the yolk and white. Studies have shown that the earlier you introduce the common allergens they are less likely to have a reaction

    We did the yolk and the egg too, in scrambled eggs. Heck, if he was gonna be allergic we wanted to know ASAP!

    Yeah, I fed DD scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs around 8 mos. I scrambled them hard and boiled them for a long time. I agree with a previous poster- excellent first finger food and and easy source of protein!
