I have been reading articles on what I should feed my bub as her first solids and I have had the perfect picture of her enjoying her nutritious solids like egg yolk with grated liver, fermented cod liver oil etc… The first time I gave her egg yolk, she enjoyed it so much… She was even licking her fingers after. But 3 hours later, she vomited violently and cried. I wasn’t sure if it was the egg or something else so I tried giving her egg yolk again 2 weeks later. She vomited again… I felt horrible for doing this to her and I have learnt that things don’t usually go as planned.

I will try and give her eggs again when she turns one. Our doctor advised us to do so too. I really hope she will outgrow egg allergy because having eggs is a regular in my family…

  • great to read


  • nice story for read


  • stories are great to read


  • Baby steps, a little bit at a time.


  • my daughter was allergic to lots of things egg being one of them but over time and giving her a little bit here and there she now can eat it


  • my almost 3yo has multiple allergies, so I understand what you are going through. egg used to be a big thing in this family. We stopped having it till lately – we are now teaching and showing LO food that can and cannot be eaten or touched.


  • We have a similar story here with our 8 month old. The tasting of egg, not even a significant amount, the size of a five cent piece produced immediate vomiting. All the contents of the stomach. I repeated it as well the next week, just to be sure and the same thing happened. We are also going to wait until one year just to be sure. And like you, having eggs is a big family tradition. And my parents keep hens… so fingers crossed!
