    Egg yolk contains great nutrients for your baby and it can be given daily. But as they grow older, the intake have to be reduced. If I never rem wrongly, they can take up to 2 years of age.

    Yeah, like what annie said. Minced up the meat before cook. For myself, after mincing up the meat, I still blend again after cook..

    Yeah.. Can try out alot of different food so more interesting..

    i think got teeth or not dosent matter cos their teeth only in front.. they wont be using the teeth in front to bite porridge isnt it? most of the time they uses their gums to gum food n sometimes they simply swallow.. so as long as the chicken bits not so big till will choke them then its ok imo. my girl simply swallows her porridge . she has 8teeth now though..i gave her chicken when she was 8mths

    Shulyn, babies can eat egg yolk every day! Alicia used to have them every day until she got bored... haha...

    Anyway, Lynette, you can cook the chicken then puree it or just add a bit of warm water to raw minced chicken, mix well till there are no lumps then pour into the porridge that's still cooking.

    Thanks all mummies for sharing

    Snowbear - I read from the Super Baby Food and it says egg yolk contains fats which baby need it but didnt mention how often we can give...

    Can i ask you, Chicken is one of the poultry that will cause allergy right? My boy is 8 months 1 week old now and we havent introduce Chicken yet. Wonder when can i start??

    I read in another book called First Foods (written by a group of nutritionists - I've put a pic of that book on my blog: you can chk it out - it's a book that's more Asian-based) that it's ok to give egg yolk every day (and in fact it's good for them)!

    It's ok to start chicken and pork at 8 months.

    Re: How often can we give baby egg yolk? Everday?

    think differnt country has differnet views on what food to give baby.. chinese give baby fish quite early but those ang mo websites say to give only after 8mths.. japanese give as early as 5-6mths as well... but then japanese books says to give only chicken n fish at 5-6mths n pork only after 1yr old cos of the fat content that pork has n baby might not be able to digest them well before 1yr old. i always play safe so i follow the latest introduction date no matter its ang mo or japanese version hee. thus i gave fish n chicken after 8mths(as per ang mo sites n books) n then pork i shall wait till after she is 1yr old...beef is ok after 9mths though i have not intro her beef yet...

    Maybe give little bit to test whether baby is allergic?

    My baby is allergic to even egg yolk. He's also allergic to chicken and carrots.

    Agree with diymummy, test if baby is allergy to egg yolk 1st (try for 4 days, abit at a time), if clear then the next time, you can use 1 whole egg yolk.

    Hmmm... for my boy he got rashes... And after the chicken, he got a cough... The cough I'm not sure is from the allergy or from the infant care actually. Haha. But the pediatrician said to stop the chicken.

    Think most obvious signs are rashes.

    Rashes and any swollen parts.. I recall seeing a little boy w swollen lips (stephen chow's movie, the sausage lips type!!) at Kandang Kerbau Hospital A&E. He ate something which he was allergic to. Funny but poor thing.. Around 5-6yr old.

    Re: How often can we give baby egg yolk? Everday?

    not snowbear but i remember her saying that she gives egg yolk only till her girl was near to 1 yr old then she try giving egg white a little to test for allergy cos she intend to buy her a bday cake n bday cakes sure includes whole eggs.. she wanna be safe that her girl can eat the bday cake thus she tested the white slightly before she turn 1.. but then her girl dosent seem to like egg white even till now this mostly she still gives egg yolk even now.

    for me, my girl loves eggs so i often give her eggs. either omelette, fried egg or hard boiled eggs. she eats the egg white as finger food n she loves it

    Re: How often can we give baby egg yolk? Everday?

    can give the egg yolk when baby's 8 to 9 months. I gave dear daughter when she was 8 months cos i wanted to add in more iron to her diet.

    for the egg yolk, best to give after 1.

    The guidelines for adult is about 3 eggs a week, but there are no clear guidelines for bbs.

    bbs can tolerate more cholesterol than adults.
