Thanks for your query.

I appreciate your concern for your baby.

Egg forms an important part of balanced diet and contains XXXXXXX source of proteins,fat,minerals and vitamins. Egg white allergy is one of commonest food allergy in young infants. Child has increased risk of egg allergy if one or both parents have any food allergy, asthma or atopy. I suggest you to start with well cooked egg yolk for few days, and later introduce egg white as well.

You can give it 3 to 4 times a week.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any other question I would like to help.

Wishing your baby good health.

God bless.
