when can a baby have olive oil? — The Bump
Parenting after a Loss

when can a baby have olive oil?

I am making my own baby food and saw a recipe for baked carronts in olive oil.  When can babies have such things?  DD is just beginning to eat so we are starting off with simple purees of foods like sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, pears, bananas, etc.  So, what about olive oil? 

Obviously, I would only use it sparingly, but we do eat hummus wth olive oil on top of it in our house. TIA!

Re: when can a baby have olive oil?

  • My pedi says to use olive oil in ALL our baby food once we make it.  Of course H isn't eating food just yet... but they told us to.. also I was told to soften my bf'ing nips with olive oil because it was harmless to her if injested.

    that is all I know... HTH:)

    I knew about the BF part, but didn't think about the food. I used olive oil on my nipples in the first week, so he had it all they way back then...lol. I didn't use it in food until probably 8+ months when I sauteed some squash/zucchini and garlic with it. It was whenever I was starting to introduce spices...maybe 9+ months? I went by wholesomebabyfood.com on the spices part.
