Honey for my honey!

It’s recommended that you wait until your baby is at least 12 months old before introducing honey. At first this didn’t make much sense to me until I found out that it is because of the fear of Infant Botulism. Even products with honey in them aren’t considered to be suitable as the bacteria Clostridium botulinum consists of tiny spores that can withstand very high temperatures.

So, when can my baby have honey?

By the time your baby reaches their first birthday their stomachs are usually developed enough to prevent the potentially fatal illness.

BiP tried some organic honey just a few days ago (she just had her first birthday!) and she loved it! She tried some on a bit of toast and her eyes almost popped out of her head! She thought it was great. It’s one less food to worry about and now I can let her loose on some honey and lemon chicken!
