hi sweetie

How you doing? Have been following the Annabel Karmel book and second stage weaning is classed as 7-9months and fish is included there. Doesn't mention tuna though. Have been giving them cod which they like, though haven't done eggs yet.

Hope you and EM are well, can't believe where the time is going, can you?!


Take care

RE: FISH & EGGS , at what age??????

We gave our girls eggs from about 11 months, as long as you cook them throughly, scrambled eggs they had first. Tuna they had at 12 months, but not sure of the age limit, but once they are over a year, they can pretty much have most things.

Fish like cod, mine started at around 7 months, annabel karmel's book is the best one, I loved it, also Lorraine Kelly's one is great, if you want it I could send it too you as no need anymore? just pm your add.

It's just "honey" they can't have until after 12 months.

Hhmmmm. I think that in the end you have you use your own discretion as one gets such conflicting advice from different sources. Some say no egg or fish till over a year. Others say you may give egg yolk but not egg white from 8 months and fish at the same age, yet others say give the white but not the yolk... it's way too confusing. The only thing they all agree on is no shellfish till older.

The best advice I got was: If you have a family history of food allergies then avoid giving those particular foods till age 1 - 3 years. For the rest give small amounts a few days in a row and if there are no problems go ahead and feed that item to your baby as a meal.

C started having egg at 8 months - I gave him whole egg, scrambled and cooked till dry (so really well cooked) and he had no trouble at all. I started white fish when he was 10 months old.

I still have not given him tuna as there are some fears about the mercury levels in tuna {canned but especially fresh} and other dark-meat fish {shark,swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish (also called golden or white snapper}, so it is advised to wait as long as possible before giving those to babies as the mercury can damage the baby's nervous system...

I gave DD fish and eggs from 6 months I think. She has absolutely no food allergies whatsoever. Just make sure the eggs are properly cooked, no runny yolks.

You could always start on yolks earlier than egg whites as the whites are more prone to cause an allergy than yolks. I did yolks at 8 months and whites at 9-10 months.
Had a total of three fresh IVF cycles and three frozen transfers (embryos and blastocysts)
