    Default No honey for under 1 year olds?

    Just checking if anyone knows the latest recommendations for honey and babies under one?

    A few years ago with my DSs it was no honey under one so was still wondering of that was true?

    DD (6mo) loves crumpets and I really want to give her a honey crumpet!

    Pretty sure it's still no honey for under 1.

    I gave it to DS at about 10/11 months but that's closer to 1 than your DD.

    No honey due to a risk of infant botulism (sp?)

    Organic honey ? I'd do some research ! I have always fed all my kids basically anything they wanted from around 6 months and last time I checked they all lived, have no allergies and have never had a 'bad' reaction to anything !

    Honey in any form is not recommended. It's not an allergy thing. There is a toxin in honey that can be fatal to children under the age of 1 (not via an allergic reaction). I won't risk it.
