If its dairy ice cream best to steer clear until they are closer to one year old. After that age I suppose it depends how you feel about giving them sugary foods.

I really would not give it to babies under a year.
I still don't like to give it to DS. Too much sugar, way to much!
We sometimes makes him his own batch of ice cream with lots less sugar.
If you don't give babies sweet things they will be more than happy with fruits!
Nothing beats a good banana or necrarin as sweeties :D

I was just wondering as someone said it would be nice on the gums while they where teething, I may just freeze a yoghurt!

peeled cucumber straight from the fridge is good too. I also gave plum proper licorice sticks as they have an anaesthetic / antiseptic effect.

We give Mooch ice cream occasionally if she has a sore throat, she doesn't seem to like it all that much. I'm pretty sure we didn't start giving it before 1 year. I find that the trouble with having it in the freezer is that I can't resist it and I end up eating it all!

melanie, a peeled carrot straight from the fridge is nice, tasty and cool on the gums!
I gave DS ice cream when he had mouth ulcers a few weeks back but never found we needed it when teething.

We made my niece lolly pops with baby juice and boiled water. She would only have a litle bit to ease her sore gums. Seemed to really help her. Took the swelling down.

Thatw ay she wasn't having sugar and it was just a frozen version to what she would normally drink x

A friend of mine's son has had icecream a couple of times, think he was 8 months the first time. I can't see there being any major health reasons why they can't have it now and then - they can have cows milk on cereals etc from 6 months. I guess it's just personal preference about how adamant you are about them not having sugary foods.

For a healthy option semi frozen apple or pear puree seems to go down well. :D

Ice cream gives Lauren a really upset tummy, mini milks are the best option of a shop bought ice cream as they are majority milk and not sugar. I would never risk an ice cream off an ice cream van due to the large quantities of bacteria on them. When the ice cream man sounds his chimes I am ashamed to say I tell Lauren what my parents told me.. that it means he has ran out of ice cream :O Bad mummy!!

never - my sons are allergic to milk & eggs (& the youngest to wheat as well) so they wont ever get shop-bought ice-creams.... but that;s only a bad thing when mummy&daddy want one but dont get them as it is unfair on the boys

M gets really excited about ice cream but won't actually eat it? she likes lollies so we freeze tubed yoghurts and we freeze fruit- pear and apples mainly.

I gave her what I thought was a big treat the other night strawberries with yeo valley chocolate mousse she didn't want it :rolleyes:

Hmmmm... I gave C his first lick of ice-cream when he was a year old. Now he knows eyekwee and asks for it. It is only the last 3 or 4 months that I have allowed him a little scoop of his own rather than just a taste of mine. Come summer I intend making ice-lollies for him...
